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.

Thanks to those who attended Alaska Common Ground and UAA’s College of Business and Public Policy Fiscally Alaskan forum on Saturday, October 1st. Click here for the agenda and video from the forum.

Board member Taylor Brelsford participated in a Safe Spaces panel discussion on September 27th. The documents he referenced can be found here.

Video from our previous three forums are available on 360 North.
