Description: 

Last March, Alaskans joined together to take action and end Alaska’s epidemic of domestic violence and sexual assault. Eighteen communities joined together for “Choose Respect” rallies and marches with a message of hope and healing for the many who have suffered from these crimes. The work begun in 2010 has given more Alaskans the courage to speak and the strength to act. On March 31st, Alaska is once again launching statewide “Choose Respect” events – and the Governor issued a challenge for 40 communities to join the cause and stand together in 2011. Together, Alaskans will take back some ground for safer Alaska homes and stronger families.

Description: 

The 'clothesline project' is an event designed to bring awareness to the community about assault and for community members to receive information about our services. The clothesline project is held nationwide as "a vehicle for women affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt. They then hang the shirt on a clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of violence against women."

Description: 

On April 2nd, at the big green hill at Confluence Park, Denver’s Guerrilla Urban Art Force (GUAF) will stage a demonstration to advocate for victims of rape. Inspired when the man who raped one of their friends was found not guilty in spite of DNA evidence and the fact that his own sister testified against him, members of GUAF started a blog andfacebook page with the hope of bringing attention to the sensible, but apparently difficult-to-process concept that rape victims don’t ask for it and are not to blame for being raped.

The project, called “I Didn’t Ask For It: Rape is a Crime, Being Raped is Not” has inspired dozens of people from Maryland and New York to California and Washington, to create more than 150 flags in support of rape survivors and in protest of rape victim blaming for sexual assault awareness month this April 2011. The flags will be displayed on the big green hill at Confluence Park on Saturday, April 2nd from 9 – 11 am.
 
After this art demonstration the flags will be sewn together to become a robe for a life size metal figure which will be displayed at the 16th International Conference on Violence, Abuse and Trauma in San Diego this September.
