The MEI is a nationwide evaluation examining how inclusive municipal laws, policies, and services are of LGBTQ+ people who live and work there. Cities are rated based on non-discrimination laws, the municipality as an employer, municipal services, law enforcement and leadership on LGBTQ+ equality.

The 2022 MEI evaluated 506 cities nationwide, including seven in Alaska. Juneau is the only city in Alaska to receive a perfect score.
