December - National Observance Event

Promoting Alaska Native Human Rights

Throughout history, the United States has denied American Indian and Alaska Native individuals the fundamental rights to education, health, and the ability to govern their own tribal lands.  That all changed when the Alaska Anti-Discrimination Act of 1945 was enacted, a law that would forbid discrimination based on race.

This year, nations across the United States are choosing December as a special time of month to reflect on the way we treat others and to learn about discrimination and equality so that people across the nation are allowed to live in liberty and safety.
