Proclaiming the month of April 2011 to be Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

Posted: February 21, 2011
Status: Legis Resolve 7 : 2011-07-19

With Alaska possessing a sexual assault rate 2.5 times that of the rest of the nation, House Concurrent Resolution 6 encourages all Alaskans to speak out against sexual assualt and let their families, friends and neighbors know that this behavior will not be tolerated.

In conjunction with the Governor's "Choose Respect" campaign and strides made in the past few years, the intention of HCR 6 is to continue public education and heighten awareness of the debilitating effects of sexual assualt on Alaskans of all ages and walks of life.

HCR 6 also wishes to recognize the perseverance and dedication of the agencies, nonprofits and thousands of volunteers who work tirelessly to discourage the continuance of this shameful crime and who provide needed intervention, refuge and support for its victims.

Please join me in this endeavor by supporting this legislation to proclaim April 2011 Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
