Domestic violence and sexual assault

Alaska has some of the highest rates of domestic violence and sexual assault in the country. According to the UAA Justice Centers 2015 Alaska Victimization Survey, a staggering 50% of adult Alaskan women have experienced intimate partner violence, sexual violence, or both during their lifetime. While these numbers indicate a critical need for more prevention and intervention they are an improvement over the 59% reported in the 2010 survey. On the next Line One, the newly appointed Executive Director for the Counsel on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, Diane Casto, joins co-host Prentiss Pemberton to discuss what has been working, what is left to be done, and shares what we can all do to help achieve her vision of an Alaska freed from domestic violence and sexual assault.
