Urge Your Representative to Award a Congressional Gold Medal to Billie Jean King!

Published on March 28th, 2023

Representatives Brian Fitzpatrick and Mikie Sherrill introduced H.R. 1831, to award Billie Jean King the Congressional Gold Medal, one of the highest civilian awards in the United States Bestowed by the U.S. Congress, the Congressional Gold Medal recognizes national appreciation for distinguished achievements and contributions by individuals or institutions that have a lasting effect in the recipient’s field long after the achievement itself. 

To date, an individual woman athlete has never received the award, and we can’t think of anyone more deserving at this moment in time than tennis legend, gender equity and civil rights icon, and Women’s Sports Foundation Founder, Billie Jean King.
