Alaska Engagement Partnership (AEP)

The purpose of AEP is to build power for conservation in Alaska by creating and supporting a network of Alaska-based organizations that collaborate on issues and approaches selected for their ability to galvanize public participation through the data-driven organizing practices being pioneered in Alaska.

The AEP network is composed of the Alaska Center for the Environment (ACE), Alaskans First Campaign (AK1), Bristol Bay United (BBU), Cook Inletkeeper (CIK), Sitka Conservation Society (SCS), Trout Unlimited’s Alaska Program (TU-AK), and the emerging SalmonState project.
