Red Dots

At the surface, power-based personal violence can seem like an abstract concept.

But for most in Alaska, these are acts of violence that have affected friends, family, or themselves.

Barriers

Our communities are made up of good people who want violence to end but may not know what to do about it and who have valid reasons they don’t intervene.  We call these reasons for not intervening “barriers.”  We all have barriers and that is ok!
