There will be a public comment hearing for the proposed parental rights bill introduced by Gov. Mike Dunleavy. On April 13, at 5:15 p.m., the public will have a chance to weigh in on House Bill 105, which would bar public schools from hiding a child’s sexual identity or health records from parents, while requiring parental permission before educators discuss any sexual matters with students. The legislation also requires schools to separate locker rooms and restrooms according to biological sex at birth.

To date, testimony in the House Education Committee has been overwhelmingly opposed to the bill, thanks to educational unions, LGBTQ activist organizations and groups like Planned Parenthood urging their supporters to call, email and write against the parental rights bill.


To testify on House Bill 105, call any of the following numbers on April 13, at 5:15 p.m.

— Juneau: (907) 586-9085

— Anchorage: (907) 563-9085

— Statewide: (844) 586-9085
