Women shouldn’t have to undress in front of men in a locker room. Men shouldn’t have to change clothes in front of women. These are the simple premises of Proposition 1. Voting Yes on Prop 1 enacts the following protections:

In city-owned or operated buildings, all intimate facilities (locker rooms, showers, restrooms, etc.) must be designated for use by persons of the same sex, if the facility is intended for use by multiple persons at the same time. Simple: one room for women, one for men.

The municipality is authorized to provide special accommodations for those who may need it — including, for example, persons who experience gender dysphoria. But the privacy rights of others must be respected. Simple: protect everyone’s rights.

Repeals the “one-size-fits-all” mandate on every Anchorage business, church and charitable group that prohibits them from protecting the privacy and safety of staff and customers, by not allowing them to reserve access to intimate areas (locker rooms, etc.) based on a person’s physical sex. Prop. 1 replaces this unfair mandate with a common-sense provision that allows a church, charity or business to set a policy that takes into consideration the nature of their operations and the desires of their staff and clientele.

Private entities (e.g., churches, businesses, restaurants) are given the freedom — if they so choose — to protect the privacy of their patrons by designating intimate facilities for use by a single sex.Simple: allow people to make choices according to their values.

Why do we need Proposition 1?

In September 2015 the Anchorage Assembly passed a new law – Ordinance 96 (AO 96) – that gives men the right to enter women’s intimate facilities such as locker rooms and restrooms simply by claiming a “gender identity” different from their biological sex. This intrusive and dangerous ordinance forces everyoneeven private facilities like athletic clubs – to open their restrooms, changing rooms, and showers to members of both biological sexes. Similar laws have been passed in other cities and states – opening a Pandora’s box of problems.
