Rally to #ReturnPFDsToExonorees

April 21, 2018 @ 5:00 pm 6:00 pm

People who are incarcerated are ineligible to receive their PFDs, but what happens if a conviction is vacated, overturned, or reversed, such as the case of the Fairbanks Four? Currently, nothing---the State of Alaska does not return the PFD payments that were wrongfully kept from Alaskans. HB 127 would change that and would pay back the permanent fund dividends for the years that a person was incarcerated before their conviction was overturned. The bill has passed the House but has been stuck in the Senate State Affairs Committee, chaired by Senator Kevin Meyer, for over a year without a single hearing.

Join the ACLU of Alaska and Native Movement for a rally in Fairbanks this Saturday to call on Senators to ensure justice is achieved and wrongfully-accused Alaskans (like the Fairbanks Four) receive the payments they are entitled to. It's time to pass HB 127. It's time to #ReturnPFDstoExonorees.
