Backers of Proposition 1 will spend the next seven weeks claiming their goal is to protect women from harassment.
But we aren’t going to let their lies go unchecked. That’s why today, we’re launching a powerful new ad featuring women across Anchorage speaking out against Proposition 1 with one simple message: Do not harm transgender people in the name of women.
The fact is, it’s already illegal to enter a restroom to harm or harass someone in Anchorage. Proposition 1 won’t change that–and it won’t make anyone safer.
Everyone, including transgender people, values safety and privacy in restrooms. And we won’t for one second let our opponents scare voters into thinking that our city’s non-discrimination law–or our transgender neighbors or friends–pose a public safety risk.
The message in this ad is important, and we need to make sure every Anchorage voter sees it before they decide the fate of Proposition 1 on Election Day.
If our opponents think that they’re going to spread these heinous lies in our city–and do so in the name of Anchorage women–they better think twice.
