The Coalition includes dozens of active volunteers and more than 10,000 individual, group, and business members– a member-base growing quickly. Our four board officers are Richard Leo (an author), Becky Long (a retired commercial fisherwoman), Ellen Wolf (a former teacher), and Whitney Wolff (an air taxi owner).
The Coalition becomes stronger with every person or organization that joins. We are working to help establish sustaining sources of electricity that cumulatively will produce more energy than the Susitna Dam at far less cost with none of the catastrophic risks

If you’d like to make a donation, mail it to the non-profit Coalition at P.O. Box 320, Talkeetna, AK 99676, or use the PayPal link below. (You don’t need to have your own PayPal account.) Because we are an established 501(c)3 non-profit organization, all donations are tax deductible. Our expenses include nuts-and-bolts items like a speakerphone and teleconferencing ability, and some more costly undertakings such as hiring experts (hydrology, biology, economics) to help review State data or to do independent studies. No one takes a salary. No one has an expense account.
When the initial legislative funding for the Susitna Dam was announced on July 25, 2011, we began to organize. From around the state, with individual backgrounds in fisheries, tourism, journalism, IT, hunting, and government, the original core group (most of whom are pictured here) began raising questions about the dam and researching the many alternatives to it. Other folks like us from around Alaska and the nation have been adding their voices daily, offering support, becoming involved. Private and public organizations, too, have joined the Coalition to raise their voices as well.
“We,” then, are you, too. We’re all in this together.
