Dr. Rosay presents at Indian Nations Conference

Dr. André Rosay of the Justice Center and Ms. Katherine TePas of the Alaska Governor's Office were invited by the National Institute of Justice to present UAA Justice Center research on violence against women and its impact on the Governor’s Initiative to end the epidemic of domestic violence and sexual assault.

Their presentation at a one-day workshop on "Victim Focused Data and Research"was part of the agenda for the three-day 12th National Indian Nations Conference on Justice for Victims of Crime held in December in Palm Springs. Dr. Rosay and Ms. TePas, who is the Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Response Coordinator for Alaska, presented data from the 2010 Alaska Victimization Survey.

The one-day workshop was designed to present recent findings from a number of local and national research and evaluation studies specifically in the area of violence against American Indian and Alaska Native women.
