Governor's Anti-Domestic-Violence Campaign Plans Events
Communities statewide will participate
A challenge has been issued for all Alaskans to stand up and speak out against domestic violence.
Wednesday Governor Parnell announced that nearly 100 communities across the state will participate in “Choose Respect” events on March 29.
“Choose Respect” is part of the governor’s statewide initiative to end the epidemic of domestic violence and sexual assault.
Events range from marches to rallies, candlelight vigils and potlucks, planned in communities including Anaktuvik Pass, St. Paul, Hooper Bay and Ketchikan.
