Overview
Salmon supports a substantial part of Alaska’s economy, helps maintain subsistence fishing rights, and provides recreational fishing opportunities. The New Venture Fund’s Salmon State program seeks to secure state and federal policies in Alaska to protect the most important salmon spawning watersheds in the state necessary to support the state’s economy and the rights of Native Alaskans. The program will defend Bristol Bay and other key salmon habitat by engaging commercial and sport fishermen, Alaska Natives, and the public. These efforts will elevate a narrative about the shared value of salmon to Alaskans.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of The League  
This grant will support The League, which uses narrative and culture change campaigns to create a cultural environment supportive of reproductive rights and justice. Using audience segmentation developed through a rigorous research process that resulted in "Story at Scale", they will reach "persuadable" groups with targeted campaigns designed to shift their perspectives and support of issues related to gender justice, including reproductive rights. (Substrategy: Advocacy)
for the Evergreen Collaborative  
This grant supports the Evergreen Collaborative: a new initiative to elevate the urgency and positive opportunities of bold climate action. The collaborative’s work will focus initially on policies to drive new public investment and strong regulatory standards that advance climate solutions. This work is informed by the current economic crisis triggered by global pandemic, trade wars over oil, and the failure to invest in American infrastructure and a strong social safety net. (Substrategy: U.S. National Policy)
