While in Alaska, we all appreciate a pretty casual lifestyle, there are certain professions where wearing jeans to work can be effectively used as a form of protest: For example, news broadcasters, District Attorneys, legislators, and other professionals can really make a statement by wearing jeans or a denim jacket to work. For those of you unable to wear denim to work, STAR has a number of denim pins to make a statement. If you feel you can make a statement, please:
Join us in protest and wear denim to work April 26th.
Rape is Never the Victim’s Fault!
If you would like to register to receive one of our Denim Day Pins, please fill out your information in the window below. You can also make donations that help STAR's mission toprovide the best quality of crisis intervention, education, and advocacy services to victims of sexual assault and abuse, their families, and our community.
STAR has provided services to the Anchorage community for over 35 years. Our services can be divided into two distinct aspects. The foundation of STAR is our Direct Service Advocacy work. This includes operating a 24 hour crisis line that is answered by STAR staff and volunteers. Advocates are also responsible for responding 24/7 to reports of sexual assault and abuse as well as providing on-going support. This includes safety planning, court accompaniment, and referrals for necessary resources.
The other aspect of STAR services is our Education & Prevention Program. Educators present on a variety of topics related to sexual violence for members of our community. Educators also present to the community at large about topics such as: bystander intervention, recognizing and responding to child sexual abuse, mandated reporting, and other topics on the spectrum of power based violence.
