• Mind Full, a CPA Podcast: Sports, gender, and…pickleball? With Sara Weiss

    • Sara Weiss
      It has been a little more than a month since the CPA released the policy statement ‘Promotion of Gender Diversity and Expression and Prevention of Gender-Related Hate and Harm’. Anti-trans bills are still being proposed, laws are still being passed, and real people are still being hurt by public vitriol on the subject of gender diversity. This week on the CPA podcast Mind Full we speak to one of those people. Sara Weiss is a pickleball competitor who was surprised to find herself in the middle of an anti-trans campaign in the leadup to this year’s U.S. Open competition.
