Anchorage’s non-discrimination law ensures fair and equal treatment for everyone. But now, a vocal minority is singling out our transgender neighbors, family and friends by forcing a discriminatory initiative—Proposition 1—on the April 2018 ballot Discrimination isn’t an Anchorage value. That’s why the people of Anchorage are standing together to vote no against this discriminatory initiative that goes against our Alaskan values.
Proposition 1 would bring discrimination back to Anchorage
I oppose discrimination
and I will vote No on Prop 1 to defend Anchorage’s laws protecting transgender people from discrimination.
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.
