It’s not a number to celebrate, but the consistently high rates of domestic violence and sexual assault in Alaska need discussion and attention. Why does Alaska stay at or near the top in the nation for these terrible statistics? What’s being done to combat family violence, and how can everyone help address it?
(Note: Due to technical difficulties, Talk of Alaska was interrupted by static. The audio file here is an abridged version of what ran live. It has been edited to take out the interruption, but has not been edited for content.)
