Dr. Rosay's presentation March 14 to Alaska Senate Judiciary Committee has been cancelled due to budget discussions

The presentation about the statewide 2015 Alaska Victimization Survey (AVS) by Dr. André Rosay, Justice Center Director, to the Alaska Senate Judiciary Committee, has been cancelled due to state budget discussions.  Lauree Morton, Executive Director, Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault was to co-present with Dr. Rosay.

Dr. Rosay and Ms. Morton were to discuss 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.
