What's at stake

Climate change. Alaska’s economy depends heavily on fishing, governed mainly by federal regulation. With ecosystem decline becoming more prevalent and the effects of climate change becoming more evident, ensuring strong pro-climate action voices in Congress is key to protecting ocean productivity and combating climate change, protecting the Alaskan economy and way of life.

Abortion. Conservative Alaskan lawmakers are working to undermine the right to abortion access. As Republicans in the U.S. House scheme to pass a national abortion ban, electing pro-choice representatives is key to protecting reproductive rights across the country.

Infrastructure. Alaska received a C- grade from the 2021 Report Card for America’s Infrastructure. From the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, Alaska will receive billions of dollars to repair roads and bridges, and more than $180 million for water and waterway projects. A significant amount of funding is also going to support natural resource-related infrastructure, including $250 million to restore fish habitat in national forests.
