Save Our Salmon (S.O.S.) Campaign
Each year, 15-20 AYEA teens step up to serve as our Youth Organizers for the year. These teens work closely with AYEA staff to choose the issue to focus on for our statewide campaign and come together for an intensive four-day summit in the fall, to strategize, learn, teach, and plan AYEA’s statewide campaign. For the 2015-16 school year, AYEA will be working on the “Save Our Salmon” (S.O.S.) campaign to protect fish and fish habitat in Alaskan communities.
AYEA teens returned to their communities after the
Youth Organizer Summit with the goal of collecting 2,500 signed petitions in support of denying permits for the Chuitna coal mine. Want to show your support for the AYEA campaign?
Stay tuned for updates — this is a developing campaign, and we will continue to update you as it progresses.
