 – Transgender youth, their parents, and a broad coalition of Anchorage residents will canvass together on Saturday morning in the final push to defeat Proposition 1, which would repeal basic protections for transgender people from discrimination under municipal law. Families who would be most impacted by Proposition 1 will be available for interviews with the media.

The canvass coincides with International Transgender Day of Visibility—a day focused on elevating the experiences and contributions of transgender people in their communities.

  • WHO: Parents, transgender children alongside a broad coalition of Anchorage residents voting no on Prop 1—including David Lockard and his transgender son Col, who have been featured in No on Prop 1 advertising; and Cathy Gillis and her transgender son CJ, who were featured this week in a KTVA story about the harmful ramifications of Prop 1 on transgender youth.

  • WHAT: No on Prop 1 canvass on Transgender Day of Visibility, with remarks by Anchorage families who would be impacted by Prop 1.

  • WHEN: 10:00 AM – 2:00 PMSaturday, March 31st

Anchorage’s leading experts on public safety and women’s privacy, educators, and more than 30 Anchorage businesses and 40 faith leaders and congregations have called on voters to oppose Proposition 1 and vote no on the ballot measure by April 3. Fair Anchorage has led a robust campaign featuring local residents who would be directly and negatively affected by repeal of the law.
