On October 16, 2019, President Trump announced his intent to nominate Joshua M. Kindred to serve as a judge on the U.S. District Court for the District of Alaska. Alliance for Justice opposes his nomination.
Before becoming the Alaska Regional Solicitor of the U.S. Department of the Interior in 2018, Kindred spent five years serving as Environmental Counsel to the Alaska Oil and Gas Association. While in that position, he fought against regulations aimed at protecting Alaska’s air, water, and wildlife. Kindred has an extensive record of extreme hostility towards environmental protections.
