Testimony Against SB 29
Posted on March 27, 2021 at 10:34 am

On Friday March 26th, the first hearing about SB 29 — one of Dan Patrick’s “priority bills” for the 87th Legislative Session, which targets transgender youth who want to play sports — was held in the Senate State Affairs Committee.

More than 140 Equality Texans submitted written testimony against SB 29, and nearly 50 went to the Capitol in the middle of a continuing global pandemic to testify in person. Trans kids, their parents, athletes, coaches, and other allies told heartfelt personal stories, offered compelling arguments proving that such a bill isn’t needed, and challenged the Senators to focus on the actual serious needs of Texans.
