Today’s guest on Morning Line featured Evan Anderson, the Civic Engagement Coordinator for the Alaska Center.
The Alaska Center works across the state to promote clean energy and strengthening Alaska's voice. They’re focused on the political process and working within the political field to get Alaskans involved in electing better candidates. It is a statewide organization with staff located in Homer, Fairbanks, and the Mat-su.

The event begins at 5:30 P.M. until 9:30 P.M. at the Anchorage Marriott Downtown.
