Challenges of living in Juneau, Capital City Community, and Culture – Rich & Diversified

While Juneau’s breathtaking mountains, landscapes, and wildlife are what entices people to come to the beautiful city, its diverse and welcoming atmosphere are what convinces people to stay. As the capital of Alaska, downtown Juneau is buzzing with members of the state legislature every session. Also located downtown is The Sealaska Heritage Institute (the largest of thirteen Alaska Native Regional corporations), Centennial Hall (where The Alaska Folk Festival and other local events are held yearly), the Filipino Community Hall, State and City Museums as well as numerous other cultural hotspots. The city of Juneau and Southeast Alaska are both dedicated to creating better, safer, and more inclusive lives for its residents which is why Juneau resources such as “Safe Ride Home”, SAIL (Southeast Alaska Independent Living), and SEAGLA (Southeast Alaska’s LGBTQ+ Alliance) are all thriving in Juneau.
