Bring Equality to Sports in Amarillo, Texas

This petition had 186 supporters

A key benefit for children playing team sports is learning how to be fair. This singular concept should be modeled by coaches, players, parents, and community leaders. Why then does the city of Amarillo only offer its more than 500 girls fast pitch softball players two makeshift fields, while there are six fields available for little league baseball? Sadly, the girls teams did have three of the six fields until they were converted to baseball fields for a tournament—and then never given back. There’s nothing fair about inequality.
Please join us in petitioning Amarillo city officials to bring equality to sports in Amarillo. We are only asking for dedicated resources to develop young female athletes. It’s only fair that these young ladies have access to the same facilities as our young men.
