Proposition 1 would bring discrimination back to Anchorage

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.

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.

Unenforceable

Proposition 1 provides no provisions for enforcement

Harmful to children

Under Proposition 1, Anchorage public schools would be required to discriminate against transgender students.

Anchorage Residents Say NO on Prop 1

Transgender people are our neighbors, family and friends—but Proposition 1 would repeal Anchorage’s non-discrimination law protecting them from discrimination. Hear from Anchorage residents about why they’ll vote NO on Proposition 1.
“The experience of a person who is transgender is authentic. And everybody needs respect.”
"Every student should be able to go to school to focus on learning, not being targeted for discrimination because of their gender identity."
“As Christians, we should present ourselves as the ones who stand for justice for the oppressed.”
