Election Day in Anchorage: LGBT rights on the line! Shared By National Gay and Lesbian task force
One Anchorage has been holding get-out-the-vote phonebanks throughout the day with large turnout from supporters and volunteers. The Task Force has helped One Anchorage hold remote phonebanks leading up to the election to fight the opposition’s shameful TV and radio ads.
Hopes are high that we will defeat the opposition’s scare tactics to finally provide protections to LGBT people in housing, employment and public accommodations in Anchorage. You can read about the Task Force’s fundraising work on the campaign from our senior training manager, Trina Olson, who helped the campaign raise over $10,000 during her fundraising training and our work to tell our personal stories from field organizer Causten Wollerman.
