Our Annual Restorative Justice Community Event Tomorrow. Join us!
Tomorrow, Thursday, November 29th, join Senator Begich and me for a community discussion on Restorative Justice. Restorative Justice focuses on the rehabilitation of offenders through reconciliation with victims and our communities. The principles of restorative justice, whether used in schools or the courts, are grounded in the traditional practices of indigenous cultures to value respect, compassion, dignity, and inclusion for all members of the community.
Thursday’s community forum will feature a national speaker trained in restorative justice school-based practices and a local speaker involved in building life skills for re-entering society after serving time in prison.
I hope you’ll join us from 6-8pm at the Mountain View Library for this important conversation.

Thank You Alaska Farm Bureau!
I want to extend a thank you to the Alaska Farm Bureau for their recognition of me as the Legislator of the Year for 2018. I’m so grateful to be part of an organization that fights for agriculture, good jobs, farm education and food freedom. I’m always excited to work hard and fight for farmers and foodies across our state!
