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, and public debate.

Join us at our upcoming series, Mondays, March 4, 18 & April 1, exploring the Housing Continuum: Building a Vibrant Community. This three part series will discuss current supply and demand, barriers to housing supply, and offer opportunities and solutions. More information here.
