Docket No.


Case Status

Letter Filed with Department of Education Opposing Biden Administration Adoption of New Title IX Regulations

Case Overview

The Biden Administration was resoundingly “roasted” for proposing new regulations (the “Proposed Rule“) implementing Title IX that would essentially force schools to allow biological males to compete on women’s sports teams.


In opposition to this, the Equal Protection Project filed a letter with the Department of Education explaining why the new regulations should not be adopted. EPP’s letter identified three main reasons why the Title IX changes should be rejected:

  1. The Proposed Rule Lacks an Adequate Legal Foundation
  2. The Proposed Rule Defies Science, and Common Sense
  3. The Proposed Rule is Something Only Congress, not an Unaccountable Federal Agency, Should Enact, if Desired


The proposed changes to Title IX are pending review at the Department of Education
