An engaged Alaskan democracy

Are you concerned about democracy in Alaska today?

Do you believe that Alaskans have many great ideas worth sharing? Are you concerned about our current polarized city and state governments? Is respectful dialogue and exchanging of ideas a better way to solve problems?

If you believe these things, Alaska Common Ground invites you to join us!

Alaska Common Ground was founded in 1991 by committed Alaskans seeking an engaged Alaskan democracy. The founders included Esther Wunnicke, Wilda Hudson, and Peg Tileston. Over the years we have addressed many issues such as state fiscal management, cost-effective justice, ballot propositions, and re-districting.

We invite you to join us and support this work. Become a member!

At Alaska Common Ground we work to build better understanding of important public policy issues facing Alaska through:

• Public forums and debates on policy issues of concern to Alaskans
• Group dialogues on issues of community interest
• Reports, recommendations, and media presentations

This summer we will focus on the three ballot initiatives and one referendum that will be on the August primary ballot. Our annual meeting at the Mountain View Library on May 3 will provide an overview of each initiative and referendum on the August 19 ballot. We will hold longer forums in the Marston Theatre in the Loussac Library on each of these ballot measures on four consecutive Wednesdays – July 23, 30, August 6 and 13 – all from 7 to 9 p.m.

Mark your calendars and join these discussions!

We also co-sponsor weekly Let’s Talk Anchorage dialogues on topics of community interest with the Anchorage Public Library. These discussions are held each Wednesday from 6-8 p.m. in the Ann Stevens Room at the Loussac. Come join the discussion!

We invite you to become a member of Alaska Common Ground to learn about, discuss, and deliberate on important issues that Alaskans are talking about!

Let’s make Alaska an informed, engaged democracy!
