Robert Churchill has been involved with organizations with equal rights as a core value for over 40 years. He has assisted incarcerated Alaskans for the past decade as a volunteer with the NAACP, Alaska Branch 1000 in Anchorage, and the Alaska Nations Reentry Group, providing help to hundreds of individuals, especially Alaska Natives, with discrimination claims, medical and other issues.  One of the Reentry Group projects resulted in a multicultural panel that does a cultural orientation for new police officers. Robert was a long-time member and Chair of the Anchorage Equal Rights Commission.  He is the former Director of Human Resources for the United States Postal Service in Alaska, and since he retired from that position, he has owned an HR consulting business.  As a parent, he was active for many years with the Anchorage Community Council system and volunteered with the Anchorage public school system. Robert lives in Anchorage with his wife, Susan, and together they have two adult children.
