Justice Center research highlighted in PickClickGive.org donation guide

PickClickGive.org distributed a special donation guide with the January 1 Anchorage Daily News called, "Your Guide to Making a Difference in the New Year: Learn How to Transform Alaska with Just $25 of Your PFD."  This guide listed the many organizations Alaskans can help by donating $25 of their PFD using the online PickClickGive.org tool.

 Justice Center research was featured in the descriptions of organizations that provide help in emergency situations and organizations that help feed the hungry. The guide highlighted the Alaska Victimization Survey research in the description of the need for assistance to emergency safe shelters for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, and noted the Justice Center report examining homelessness in Alaska in the piece about food banks. The reference is to the Summer 2009 Alaska Justice Forum article, "A Look at Homelessness in Alaska."
