The Alaska chapter of Americans for Prosperity is gearing up for part two of its three-part education summit. Led by state director Bernadette Wilson, the aim is to equip Alaskans with the tools, tactics, techniques and strategies to organize local communities, influence lawmakers and effectively communicate in order to advance freedom and opportunity.

Part one occurred earlier this month. There is not cost to attend the all-day event on March 5, but attendees must RSVP by March 1. Part three will take place on March 12.

According to Americans for Prosperity’s mission statement it utilizes grassroots outreach to drive long-term solutions to the nation’s biggest problems. This is accomplished by engaging friends and neighbors on key issues and encouraging them to actively build a culture of “mutual benefit, where people succeed by helping one another.”

The national organization recruits concerned citizens across 35 states to advance public policy.

The upcoming Anchorage training session takes place at Hotel Captain Cook.

The schedule is as follows:

— 9 a.m. – Breakfast (Optional)

    Why have it downtown Anchorage? No one wants to go to that place.

    • Lobo says:

      Yes…. The only time(s) I go to Anchorage is when it’s a medical necessity, and I can’t get it done here in the Valley…And if I can, I plan the arrival, and departure times of day.

  • Older Than Alaska says:

    Lobo, hey we are talking the Captain Cook here. Really? You are afraid to go there? I frequent that wonderful Hotel often. To be honest with you I feel more unsafe in Wassila with its meth heads and morons in big jacked up pickups.

  • Proud Alaskan says:

    Yes Anchorage is a cesspool of a city.
