Who We are

The Stand for Alaska group represents a broad, statewide coalition, including Alaska Native corporations, trade unions, businesses and industry organizations, as well as a growing coalition of Alaskans concerned about the state’s economic future. Stand for Alaska opposes Ballot Measure 1 which would overhaul regulations affecting virtually any type of project in Alaska. The measure poses a threat to our jobs, our economy and our communities.
