Victims for Justice
Tree Ceremony 
April 20 at 12 PM, 2020

In support of our friends at Victims for Justice, we invite you to participate in their Annual Tree Ceremony. This ceremony is a centerpiece event for Crime Victims' Rights Week honoring those affected by violent crime. Attendees are invited to tie colored ribbons, signifying eleven types of violent crime on branches to represent themselves or others who have been impacted by violent crime. This year, VFJ will live-stream the tying of 11 honorary ribbons. If you wish for a staff member to hang a ribbon in honor of you or a loved one please submit a request  here  by April 20 at 11:00.
Denim Day 2020 on April 29
Honoring Denim Day the VIRTUAL Way!

Denim Day asks community members, elected officials, businesses and students to make a social statement with their fashion statement by wearing jeans on this day as a visible means of protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual violence.

You can do this no matter where you are. Whether you're working from home, or braving the world as an essential worker, you can help STAR clients on Denim Day. The suggested donation is $5 to wear a teal awareness ribbon pin, and $20 to wear jeans to "work." Instead of putting cash in a donation jar at your workplace, you can make a secure gift online here: www.staralaska.com .

Wear jeans and awareness ribbons and share a photo using the hashtags #StandWithSTAR and #DenimDay on April 29! Be sure to tag us @staralaska!
