Check out our current Priority Issues:
Our Board determines AKPIRG's priority issues based on organizational capacity, need, and public interest. We also regularly partner with grassroots, local, and national groups on consumer and public interest issues to increase our collective effectiveness.
Internet service is frequently unreliable and expensive throughout Alaska; however, internet is increasingly an essential tool for education, basic services, economic endeavors, and research. Threats to Net Neutrality protections will only exacerbate the existing struggles with internet access in Alaska at the expense of consumers. Alaskans deserve reliable, affordable, and open internet.
Census 2020 & Redistricting
Every individual in Alaska will be impacted by the decennial census. This data will determine election maps, guide public policy, and drive funding decisions for years. It's critical to public interest that the census and any subsequent redistricting processes be conducted with integrity and transparency.
Alaskans pay among the highest prices in the country for energy. These costs to consumers can be reduced through improved system efficiencies and development of the renewable industry in Alaska.
