FAIRBANKS CONCERT AIMS TO GET OUT THE ALSKA VOTE

FAIRBANKS, AK – Voter turnout in Fairbanks plummeted to the lowest point in a decade this fall. In other areas of the state, the outlook was just as bleak, but a coalition of several Alaska Native groups is working to reverse that trend. They plan to bring out the vote through music.

Musicians will take to the stage in Fairbanks on Wednesday for the Hunt-Fish-Share Rock the Native Vote Concert. The concert, which will take place in Lathrop High School’s Hering Auditorium beginning at 8 p.m., was organized to coincide with the Alaska Federation of Natives Convention, being held in Fairbanks.

“I think using the international language of music and film to share positive messages of hope and inspiration does in fact motivate and inspire people to positive action,” said Robby Romero, the headliner and one of several artists who will be performing.
