Grassroots Gala

Share your story

Thank You!

A huge thank you to everyone who bought tickets to our Grassroots Gala. Due to the earthquake on Friday we were forced to postpone the Grassroots Gala. We are working on rescheduling and if you have any questions at all please feel free to reach out. 

This incredible community has come together once again. Let’s build to another incredible 20 years and don’t forget to share your story.


20 years ago, a group of visionary, young Alaskans boldly founded Alaska Youth for Environmental Action (AYEA) and kicked off a movement that has touched communities across our state. Join us to commemorate two decades of AYEA and the tremendous youth-led work that continues to transform Alaska.

We, the AYEA community, will gather as alums, supporters, and community champions to celebrate AYEA’s accomplishments and envision our next era. Help support past, present, and future AYEA youth leaders’ work to create a more sustainable and just Alaska. Come enjoy an evening filled with good food and good times to propel Alaska’s most inspiring youth-driven initiative into the next 20 years.

December 1
11am- 4pm
Anchorage Unitarian Universalist Fellowship

On Saturday, December 1st, we will gather as both current AYEA teens and as AYEA alumni to be part of an intergenerational dialogue to learn from each other and strengthen our network. Come enjoy lunch and conversation as we strategize how to support current campaigns, stay involved as alumni, and keep building grassroots people power.
