An engaged Alaskan democracy.

If you believe that:

  • Democracy depends on citizen participation,
  • Alaskans have a lot of good ideas that should be shared,
  • Polarization is not the way our communities and state should function, and
  • By respectfully exchanging ideas with one another, we can work toward solving the problems facing our community, state, and nation;

Alaska Common Ground invites you to join us in an effort to enhance our democratic way of life by engaging Alaskans in respectful conversations. We work to build a better understanding on important public policy issues through forums, group discussions, policy papers and public service announcements.

You can now support us when you apply for your PFD. Please Pick.Click.Give and support Alaska Common Ground!
