Welcome to the website of Alaskans Together, a statewide organization that is dedicated to the education and advocacy for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community in Alaska.
Alaskans Together is composed of two main parts. Alaskans Together for Equality (ATE) is the educational and advocacy branch of the organization. As a nonpartisan and nonprofit organization, ATE works to advocate for equal rights for the LGBTQ+ community in Alaska at the local, state, and federal levels.
The other part of Alaskans Together is the Alaskans Together Foundation, Inc. (ATF), an education nonprofit that focuses on education to serve the needs of Alaska’s diverse LGBTQ+ community. The foundation aims to provide educational resources and support for the community to ensure that everyone is informed and empowered to advocate for their rights.
The LGBTQ+ population in Alaska is spread throughout the state and Alaskans Together is dedicated to supporting everyone in the community.
Thank you for visiting and we hope that you consider becoming a member and helping us make progress towards civil equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Alaskans.
