According to DEMi's research, nearly 75% of Alaskans have experienced personally or know someone who has experienced domestic violence or sexual assault.

DEMi was shocked to learn that the Alaska rape rate is 2.5 times the national average.

What scared us the most, however, is the fact that child sexual assault in Alaska is nearly 6 times the national average.

CHILDREN are being abused at 6 times the national rate in an area where 30% of them can't even access victim services because there are no services available in their area.

At the same time, we need to tip our hats off to Alaskans. Nearly 90% of them would vote to increase funding for victim service programs and over 90% would support increased penalities for domestic violence and sexual assault perpetrators.

Help Alaska save it's children today. Help DEMi stop the sexual abuse of children in their home.
