Members of the Alaska State Society have been invited to attend a screening of "For the Rights of All: Ending Jim Crow in Alaska" at the National Museum of the American Indian at 6:30pm on Tuesday, September 22. The event is co-hosted by Senator Murkowski, Senator Begich and Congressman Young.

At 6:30pm the event will open with an hour reception with wine, beer (Glacier Brewhouse) and Alaskan appetizers prepared by Chef Kinneen, executive chef of Orso with seafood from Alasks Seafood Marketing Institute (and a few more of your favorite Alaskan treats!)

At 7:30pm the PBS documentary will be shown in the Rasmuson Theater. The one hour documentary will premier on your local PBS stations in November.

The event ends at 9pm.

In addition, the sponsors are seeking 8-10 volunteers to help out. Volunteers would help with check in, assisting guests at the event and a few volunteers will be asked to help after the film with guests. It should be a fun night for all, and as the film is a celebration of the passage of Alaska's civil rights law. The hosts are hoping to show their guests some great Alaskan hospitality, cuisine & film.

To volunteer or RSVP (space is limited), please contact the email on the invitation above.
