NEA-Alaska in the Legislature

NEA-Alaska represents the interests of educators and students at the Statehouse.
Senate President Peter Micciche with NEA-Alaska President Tom Klaameyer

All students deserve an education that inspires them, encourages their curiosity, and prepares them for success. 

All educators deserve the support, resources, and time to do their jobs well, and the security to retire with dignity.

Through NEA-Alaska’s advocacy at the Statehouse, we work to create public pre-K-12 schools, colleges, and universities that are worthy of Alaskans, and to build a more fair, just, and equitable nation for everyone.

NEA-Alaska's Office of Government Relations:

  • Lobbies for state legislation that supports public education, educators, and socially just policies, and against legislation that weakens public education and social justice
  • Advances the NEA-Alaska Legislative Agenda, our member-driven, member-endorsed agenda for what we do at the Statehouse
  • Strengthens relationships with key members of the legislature on both sides of the aisle
  • Prepares NEA-Alaska leaders and activists to engage with and lobby members of the legislature
  • Provides updates on our advocacy and invites NEA-Alaska members to engage with the Legislature
  • Works with like-minded organizations and coalitions that share our commitment to strong public schools and resilient public services
