Juneau residents hold hands across the Douglas Bridge during the Hands Across America event in 1986. More than 5 million people joined hands to form a human chain from New York City to Long Beach, Calif. The event was intended to raise money to fight hunger and homelessness in the United States. Although Juneau was far from the event, residents found a way to participate.
