Volunteers are needed to help bring equality to Anchorage. The One Anchorage Initiative seeks to provide LGBTQ Alaskans 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 through Proposition 5 on the April 3, 2012 Municipality of Anchorage ballot. Volunteers are needed in a number of roles including phone banking and canvassing.

Today, most – but not all – hardworking Alaskans are protected from being unfairly fired. Proposition 5 seeks to include LGBTQ citizens in that protection to ensure that LGBTQ people in Anchorage are not denied housing, loans, jobs and services based on their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Contact the Campaign Office at 907.575.2150 to get involved. The office is located at 207 E. Northern Lights, Suite 225, Anchorage, AK 99503.
