LET THEM PLAY OREGON PETITION TEXT:

Dear Governor Brown, Oregon Senate & House, and U.S. Senators & Representatives of the State of Oregon,

Part of Phase 2 Reopening Guidance for recreational sports includes the prohibition of any sport that involves participants coming into bodily contact. It has also been stated that Phase 2 will be in effect until a reliable treatment or vaccine is available. As I am sure you are aware, this creates the untenable situation of tens of thousands of Oregon youths unable to pursue their chosen athletic endeavors indefinitely. There is no question that this situation will lead to numerous adverse effects to our children’s physical and mental health, attendance and performance in school, personal and professional growth and too many more negative consequences to mention. It will also create far reaching ripple effects that will be felt in Oregon for many years. With the world in the state it is in currently, it is more imperative than ever to ensure our kids are able to be involved in these positive and constructive activities.

It was also reported that there will be exceptions made for college and pro sports teams to play. This not only acknowledges the fact that these activities can be engaged in safely, it creates an unacceptable disparity that needs to be rectified. Our kids need to be represented fairly in this decision and a plan to allow them to engage in their activities needs to be developed and adopted. There are thousands of concerned parents, teachers, coaches, athletes and other citizens ready to be a part of that solution. We need swift and decisive action on this immediately so our kids can begin to engage in their fall sports programs without unnecessary delays.

What the children or Oregon are missing out on will affect them for the rest of their lives. Thank you for your attention and timely action.
