Dr. Rosay presents to the Alaska Senate Judiciary about the Alaska Victimization Survey results on Monday, March 14

Dr. André Rosay, Justice Center Director, has been invited to present data from the statewide 2015 Alaska Victimization Survey (AVS) to a meeting of the Alaska Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday, March 14, 2016,at 1:30 p.m. in the Capitol Building, Juneau. Lauree Morton, Executive Director, Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault will be co-presenting with Dr. Rosay.

They will be discussing data from both the 2010 and 2015 statewide AVS.  The results from the 2015 Alaska Victimization Survey conducted by the University of Alaska Anchorage Justice Center for the Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault  (CDVSA) show a decline in intimate partner and sexual violence in Alaska since 2010.  While the numbers are getting better, they remain unacceptably high.
