Proposition 1: Dangerous, unnecessary and unenforceable
Prop 1 is a ballot proposition you will see in Anchorage’s municipal election on April 3rd. It is an effort by Alaska Family Council President Jim Minnery to repeal portions of Anchorage’s Non-Discrimination Ordinance pertaining to transgender people and change how a person’s sex is viewed for every municipal policy, procedure, and facility.
Does not improve public safety
Existing Anchorage law already makes it illegal to enter a restroom to harm or harass someone
Invitation to harass
Proposition 1 allows strangers to demand to check a person’s “sex at birth” before allowing access to certain restrooms and public facilities
Unethical & discriminatory
Proposition 1 would change Anchorage municipal code to eliminate any and all protections for transgender people.
Proposition 1 provides no provisions for enforcement
Harmful to children
Under Proposition 1, Anchorage public schools would be required to discriminate against transgender students.
