Many states, including Wisconsin, are taking up bills restricting transgender athletes’ ability to participate on sports teams that match their gender identity. Here’s a timely and free session from Poynter to get you up to speed on the topic:

During the 2021 legislative session, seven states passed laws that restrict transgender athletes’ ability to participate on sports teams that match their gender identity; dozens more states introduced similar bills in 2021 that didn’t pass.

At the center of public — and often vitriolic — debate around such laws are kids, families, athletic clubs and schools. This webinar, featuring award-winning ESPN reporter Katie Barnes, will teach journalists how to thoughtfully, accurately and ethically report stories about gender and sports on the local level.
