Two weeks before the start of the upcoming session of the Alaska Legislature, a group of conservative state lawmakers is holding the second part of a listening session that deals with oppressive Covid mandates and threats personal liberties in Alaska.
Hosted by Sen. Lora Reinbold, along with Representatives David Eastman, Christopher Kurka and George Rauscher, the Jan. 4 event will be held at Anchorage Baptist Temple from 4-7 p.m.
The event is a follow up to the first session which occurred on Nov. 22 when a continuous stream of Alaskans took three minutes apiece to share heartbreaking stories about loved ones dying in the hospital after being denied Covid treatments or losing long-time businesses and careers due to shot mandates. Gathered both in person and online, residents from across the state spoke with intense passion, calling on Gov. Mike Dunleavy and state lawmakers to intervene and defend companies and individual employees from coercive federal and local vaccine mandates. They also asked them to protect doctors willing to prescribe alternative treatments like ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine and vitamin supplements.
At the upcoming Jan. 4 event, in addition to hearing from four guest speakers, attendees again have an opportunity to testify in person or via Zoom. The event will be streamed at EmpoweringAlaskans.com (Zoom ID: 899 0693 0195/ Passcode: 461980).
