Anchorage’s Prop 1 failure endangers children

Anchorage’s Prop 1 failure endangers children

Having very strong feelings against the passing of Proposition 1 in the city of Anchorage, I have resolved to do my shopping and support the stores on the Peninsula. Let my voice be heard! I no longer feel safe in the restrooms of the Anchorage businesses!

News broadcasts of what took place in a Target store restroom some weeks ago should be enough to put all parents on guard to protect their vulnerable children. Even though Target now provides shopping services to customers remaining in their vehicles, I choose not to support their stores wherever they are located due to their restroom policies.

If you feel the same as I do, would you speak up? Submit a letter, tell your friends, protect your children and grandchildren. Even one voice makes a difference. Speak up.
