In just two short weeks, on April 3rd, Anchorage citizens will be voting on Proposition 5. Early voting has already begun and runs from March 19th-April 2nd at City Hall and Loussac Library. Visit the Muni page for voting hours.
Pride Foundation is a proud supporter of the One Anchorage Initiative, the community effort working with partners across Alaska to bring equality to the Anchorage Municipal Code. Help us say a loud and resounding “Yes on Proposition 5!”
As you may already know, right now in Anchorage there are no federal, state, or local laws of any kind protecting people from being unfairly fired or refused an interview because of their sexual orientation or transgender identity. Voting Yes on Proposition 5 will ensure that LGBTQ people receive the same legal protections that are already provided to other persons in Anchorage in employment, financial practices, housing, and restaurants, department stores and other businesses.
One Anchorage Initiative volunteers have been working tirelessly to ensure the success of Proposition 5 but volunteers are still needed in the next two weeks. If you have a few hours to spare to volunteer on the Yes on Proposition 5 campaign, please contact the Campaign Office at 907.575.2150 to get involved. The office is located at 207 E. Northern Lights, Suite 225, Anchorage, AK.
