The Alaska Institute for Justice Addresses the Climate Change Crisis

Aug 9, 2022Article, Climate Press

The Alaska Institute for Justice’s (AIJ) mission is to promote and protect the human rights of all Alaskans, including immigrants, refugees, crime victims including survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, and Alaska Native communities by providing critical services to these undeserved populations through legal representation, language access, training and educational programs and advocating for climate justice.

This series of six articles, Human Rights: Legal, Social,
and Climate Justice, explores the origins of AIJ 16 years ago, the various programs it offers, and its impact on our state in its unwavering devotion to preserving and defending the rights of all Alaskans. There’s a Yup’ik term more Alaskans need to be familiar with as our planet continues to suffer the effects of climate change, one that was added to the State Hazard and Mitigation Plan in 2018
