First Alaskans Addresses Racism

Lori Townsend, APRN – Anchorage

First Alaskans Institute is working on a new project to address racism in Alaska. The Institute has a two year grant worth $350,000 from the WK Kellogg Foundation to start a statewide conversation on the issue.

Liz Medicine Crow is leading the new initiative.  She says the dialogue about race will start among Alaska Natives and grow from there. She wants to start things off with a big question.

Liz Medicine Crow is Director of the Alaska Native Policy Center at First Alaskans Institute.
