From the Sealaska Shareholder Newsletter: Representation Matters
Friday, September 9, 2022
“Nothing about us without us” is a widely recognized saying that describes why effective public policy cannot be created without the full participation of the people impacted by it. Alaska Natives make up 18 percent of the population in Alaska but are extremely underrepresented in the Alaska Legislature, local government and positions of power and authority throughout the state. Sealaska believes Alaska will be a better place for all its residents when its leadership better reflects our population. We recognize and thank our shareholders serving in public office at all levels of government in Alaska and beyond.
