ANCHORAGE: The Alaska Democratic Party (ADP) condemns the Dunleavy appointed Alaska State Board of Education and Early Development’s vote last night to limit trans-female students’ participation in school sports. This is yet another attack on Alaska’s youth and the LGBTQ+ community from Governor Dunleavy and his administration.
“What’s clear is that Governor Dunleavy will stop at nothing to push his extreme agenda. If Gov. Dunleavy truly cared about bettering Alaska for generations to come, he would not discriminate against young members of the LGBTQ+ community. The only thing students should have to worry about are their grades, not whether or not the government is working to limit their opportunities and experiences, ” said Executive Director, Lindsay Kavanaugh. “This is not the safe and welcoming environment Alaskans deserve.”
The ADP is holding true to our values as we gear up for 2024. If you are interested in running for office, please email the Party at [email protected].
