Alaska is on the front lines of climate change. Rise for Climate, Jobs & Justice Anchorage will set the stage for an equitable and resilient new energy future by bringing together some of the state's most innovative thought leaders and visionaries to educate, inspire and empower Alaskans to act on critical climate change and energy issues. 

The Anchorage event is planned from 11-3 on Saturday, Sept 8th at Delaney Park Strip Mall in downtown Anchorage and is part of a nationwide action that includes Fairbanks, Juneau and Homer. 

The powerhouse stage line-up includes former Lt. Governor and Arctic Research Council Chair, Fran Ulmer, Anchorage Mayor Ethan Berkowitz, Senator Tom Begich, IBEW organizer, Chris Tuck, Arctic Solar Ventures CEO Steven Trimble, conservation biologist and Professor Rick Steiner, fisheries expert and author Kate Troll, artist & social justice activist Indra Arriaga, Savoonga Tribal President Delbert Pungowiyi, musician and activist Libby Roderick, Alaska Pacific University legal scholar Victoria Hykes Steere, and others. 

Regina MacDonald, of Mr. Whitekeys fame will preside over the stage. The event also features kid and art activities, food trucks and exhibits on renewable energy, local food, zero waste, green jobs, and community health and the environment. Free parking is available at First Presbyterian, at 10th and G.  

What the speakers have to say about Climate, Jobs and Justice: 

Rick Steiner:  "A noted civil rights leader once said that 'If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem.' The people gathering for the Anchorage climate rally today are clearly part of the solution to the climate crisis. As we approach the climate tipping point, we are also approaching a political tipping point, where governments the world over will, finally, begin to solve the climate crisis.”

Kate Troll: "This rally is an excellent way to learn and become part of the discussion to address climate challenges and seize clean energy opportunities."

McKibben Jackinsky: "Too many of us are unaware of the devastatingly high and unjust personal price paid to support the state’s financial addiction to oil and gas, unaware we are excluded from decisions that are turning lives upside down, that are a part of the equation that is causing Alaska to warm and destroy wildlife habitat faster than any other state. When criticisms of the fossil fuel industry are raised, the powerfully persuasive response is that letting go of our petroleum reliance will cost jobs, lower our standard of living, and bankrupt the state. The Rally for Climate, Jobs and Justice is about creating a new path for Alaska; one energized by renewable resources that secures a healthy and fair future for our land and people."

  8. without doubt i'll say if you're in need of getting rid of negative and degrading remarks on your credit report as fast as possible and also increasing your credit score as high as a 720 range, QUADHACKED (at) GMAIL (dot)COM is the hack team to go by, i'm sure most people in credit repair needs are not as bad as mine when i met him. why i'm so sure and speak this well about him is because he helped i and my daughter with our credit report and credit score. firstly my daughter met him through her friends mum and ever since then he helped her remove student loan that had been lurking since 2007 which was there in the first place because my card got expired and i wasn't aware . and also she got into repossession trouble. he helped her sort this first hand , my daughter then recommended him to me. he helped me renegotiate three late payments history and had them removed. i was shook . but goddamn i was amazed. that's why i can confidently recommend him.since we met him i and my daughter are now in a 700+ range. i'll say you send a descriptive message to their email Q U A D HA C K E D @ G M A I L . C O M .
