Celebrate Juneteenth with the Alaska Black Caucus
Celebrating Juneteenth as a community is especially important in light of the ongoing impacts of the events of the world, nation, and communities of color, even right here in Anchorage. We’re asking organizations and businesses to join us in our effort to recognize the importance of this holiday by making it more than just a day off.
Thank you in advance for standing in solidarity with us as we introduce you to our community and work with you to help make a difference for everyone in Anchorage.
Thanks to the generous support of our community partners and donors, the Alaska Black Caucus proud to announce the Equity Center, coming soon to Downtown Anchorage.
The Center will provide office space and centralized services and programs to support our BIPOC community. The facility purchase was made possible by a volunteer-led effort to raise donations to match funds previously granted for the project.
It’s not too late to contribute to our vision for the Equity Center. We welcome your support towards renovations of the facility as we look forward to the Grand Opening… stay tuned for more!
Please contribute if you can or contact us if you would like to join the team of extraordinary volunteers who will lead this historic effort to fruition.

Letter from the President and CEO, Celeste Hodge Growden
Yes, we’ve reestablished the premier non-partisan organization that came into existence back in the 1970’s and had a three decade run. The purpose, then as it is now, of the Alaska Black Caucus (ABC) is to assert the Constitutional Rights of African Americans. We will achieve this by…
Actively involving the Caucus in the decision making processes in the community as a contributing partner with decision-makers and representative bodies affecting the lives and livelihoods of African Americans.
Supporting and working in areas which help to advance the educational, cultural, political, and economic well-being of the African American community.
Acting as a liaison and coordinating entity for the various POC interests within the community and State.
Making available accurate and timely information on relevant issues and areas of concern to POCs and their progressive supporters.
Creating awareness that the struggle to achieve total equality has not yet been achieved.
Emphasizing the ever-increasing need for African Americans and POCs to make renewed attempts toward attaining these goals.
