Alaska Policy Forum


The Alaska Policy Forum will be the primary resource for credible authoritative Alaska policy research and education from a conservative perspective.


APF pursues this vision by conducting timely, relevant and accurate research and providing free market, Alaskan solutions in the most effective means possible to policymakers at the state and local level.

  • We believe that individual freedom and private property are inextricably linked.
  • We believe that government should be limited, transparent and accountable.
  • We believe in responsible, sustainable development.
  • We believe that free markets offer better solutions than government planning.
