How Can I Help?

There are many ways to get involved

Get Informed

All Politics are Local!

As Alaskans we all have the right (and responsibility) to contact our representatives on city councils, school boards, legislature and in congress to speak up about issues that are important to us and our families.

Don’t be intimidated! Legislators and their staff are for the most part very friendly and should appreciate hearing from their constituents. Be polite, thank them for the good they’ve done, share your opinion, and what course of action you would like your elected official to take. Calls, emails, and in person visits are great ways to connect with the political process. After all, at it’s best, our Government is “of the people, by the people, and for the people.”

 

Who is my Legislator?

If you are not sure who your elected officials are at the local, state or federal level please contact our Political Organizer Miguel Rohrbacher at mrohrbacher@apea-aft.org
