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.


Can We Talk?

Who is Alaska Common Ground?

ACG Opposes a Constitutional Convention

Alaskans have spoken and are on track to resoundingly vote no on a constitutional convention in the November election. At the March 16 board meeting, Alaska Common Ground’s Board of Directors unanimously passed a resolution supporting a “No” vote. Read the resolution and find out more here.


30th Anniversary

We enjoyed seeing those of you who joined us for our 30th Anniversary Celebration on June 1. Thank you also to those who joined us via zoom. If you missed it, or had a hard time hearing it, you can read Peg’s talk here.


Climate Action Series

Alaska Common Ground hosted a series exploring local solutions to the climate crisis based on the goals found in Anchorage’s Climate Action Plan. You can find video and more information at the links below.


We, the Board of Alaska Common Ground, stand in solidarity with Black lives. We stand against the legacies of racism and violence that have attempted to silence Black and Indigenous voices, and all People of Color, for generations throughout this country including Alaska. Read the full statement here.
