Ask Sen. Murkowski to Act on Climate
Senator Lisa Murkowski is one of three Republicans to join the first bipartisan climate caucus in the Senate. Send her a message today and thank her for crossing party lines to tackle climate change and urge her to:
- Support the 100% Clean Energy Economy Act.
- Extend the clean energy credits in the Tax Extenders Package or a standalone bill.
- Continue her support for battery storage and microgrid technology research and development.
- Prioritize maintenance, safety, and access to jobs and services in considering changes to the federal highway program. Rethinking our transportation system has a major impact on CO2 emissions from highway transport.
Stop Pebble Mine Now
The Final Environmental Impact Study (FEIS) from the Army Corps has been released. But the fight is not over. This has been a highly compromised process and we need our leadership and the EPA to stand by their commitments to science, NOW.
Sign on below to let Senator Murkowski, Senator Sullivan and the EPA know that they must take action to veto this mine. The EPA can stop this and our leaders can use their power to ensure Alaskans like you are heard.
As Alaskans, we understand the importance and fundamental value of salmon to our community. Salmon touches our lives from our freezers for long winters, to our communal activities, to our family dinners, to our livelihoods. This year, I pledge to donate some of my fish catch to someone in need. Together we can ensure a just and thriving Alaska for future generations.
Take action below to learn how to share your catch.
The Lt. Governor has committed to sending an absentee ballot to Alaskans over the age of 65, but this is not enough. All Alaskans deserve to be safe while exercising their constitutional right to vote – nobody should have to risk their life to head to the polls. We urge you to share a unique comment to the Lt. Governor and his staff, asking them to adopt safe & secure regulations for this year’s elections by allowing ALL Alaskans to vote at home.
Alaskans have been fighting Pebble Mine for over a decade and thousands of us have a Pebble story to tell. Whether you live in Bristol Bay or Pebble Mine threatens your lively hood – your voice deserves to be told. Tell us about your connection to salmon and why you oppose Pebble Mine.
A Census undercount would impact our people, our health, and our environment. Alaskan communities that don’t get fully counted in 2020 will miss out for the next 10 years. This is the time to get involved. The Census counts. So do you.

Pledge to Restore the Eklutna River
The Eklutna River once provided habitat for a thriving, sustainable salmon run and supported the way of life of the Eklutna people. In 1929 the water was diverted for the Municipality of Anchorage’s growing energy needs and the people of Eklutna’s lives and salmon habitat were dramatically changed by from the impacts to the watershed. Show your support to restore the river.

Statewide Non-Discrimination Legislation
Current state law provides no avenue for legal recourse in the event of discrimination. Marginalized communities like the LGBTQ community, their friends and families could have their rights and livelihoods taken away with no legal recourse. Only three cities in the state have ordinances and resolutions protecting these identities, leaving 55% of the population vulnerable to discrimination and violence.
All Alaskans deserve to be safe. We need clear, explicit protections for sexual orientation, gender expression, and gender identity to ensure the protection of all Alaskans’ rights. There is no room for discrimination in our state, and too many lives are at risk. There is no room for discrimination in our state. Let our leaders know, Alaskans need secured protections for all communities.
Single-use plastic Bag Ban
Stand with youth leaders of Alaska Youth for Environmental Action (AYEA) to urge policymakers to reduce single-use plastic bags across Alaska.
