Native Peoples Action strives to provide Alaska Native communities and our traditional values with a voice at all levels of policy making. We will leverage our strong Alaska Native community networks to build a volunteer base to provide confidence, encouragement, and guidance in connecting Alaska Native traditional values and political candidates, proposed policies, and land management.
NPA released an online community survey to gather information about the following: 1) Community level policy priorities 2) What is working well to uplift Alaska Native well-being, and 3) what could be improved to uplift Alaska Native well-being. The results of this survey will guide NPA’s mission to amplify Alaska Native voices. Take community survey for a chance to win a FREE NPA sweater! Survey open until April 22nd.
