Indra Arriaga is the Strategic and Operational Director for the Alaska Institute for Justice. She works across AIJ's different programs and on multiple grant development and operations aspects. Prior to joining AIJ, Indra served as the Language Assistance Compliance Manager for Alaska’s Division of Elections, and under her direction the program expanded to language access in 14 languages and dialects.  Indra has spent more than two decades working directly with rural and remote communities in Alaska in various capacities, including elections, community development, and demographic and social research projects. Indra holds a BA and MA in Political Science from St. Mary’s University in Texas. She has worked in finance, management consulting, research, and analysis and sustains an artistic practice. As an immigrant, a woman, a person of color, and an LGBTQ person, ensuring that all voices are heard equally is a priority for her personal and professional life.

Note that there is a 3-second period of "noise" at about 1 minute 25 seconds that replaces several minutes of "technical confusion."
