NCAA to consider transgender policies at October meeting
The ACLU and Athlete Ally asked the organization to boycott any NCAA championships in Idaho
INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana (KMVT/KSVT) - The NCAA Board of Governors expects an update on its transgender policy at the October meeting.
We reached out to the association and Gail Dent, associate director of communications provided KMVT with this statement; “the NCAA is working with national and international groups as it reviews its current transgender athlete policy. Inclusion and fairness are the objectives in addressing the complex set of issues.”
In June, the ACLU and Athlete Ally asked the organization to boycott any NCAA championships in Idaho.
The NCAA is also monitoring the Hecox vs. Little lawsuit.
To jog your memory, the ACLU and Cooley LLP are suing the state, on behalf of transgender athlete Lindsey Hecox, a Boise State sophomore and Boise High School junior Jane Doe claiming the new law, House Bill 500, is unconstitutional and violates federal law.
The federal judge has yet to make a written decision on the lawsuit.
