Resolution of Support for Smoke free Alaska

Posted about 5 years ago by Joscelyn Vanduren

For discussion the November general membership meeting:

"We’re closer to protecting Alaskan employees from the effects of secondhand smoke than we’ve ever been before. More than half of Alaskans live in communities with smoke-free workplace laws in place, but many of the rest live in areas that are unable to enact smoke-free workplace laws due to limited power in the local government. The next logical step is to go statewide and take a stand for all Alaskan workers. It’s good for business, it creates a healthier environment for employees and customers, and it’s the right thing to do. All Alaskans have the right to breathe smoke-free air. Let’s do what we can to protect that right."

"Smoke-Free indoor workplaces are important to these business owners and organizations from all over Alaska! If your business or organization would like to join this list and sign a resolution of support, download a copy of our resolution and email it to Be sure to let us know if you have any questions, and thank you for your support."
