CHOOSE RESPECT — Ketchikan's Choose Respect march walks up Main Street on Thursday. Around 50 participants marched through steady rain, listened to a Native welcoming some and heard letters from Alaska Senators Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan read aloud to raise awareness of domestic violence in Ketchikan. According to the Alaska Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, 59 out of every 100 adult women in Alaska have experienced intimate partner violence or sexual violence of some kind. The Choose Respect campaign was started in 2009 by then-Gov. Sean Parnell and occurs in communities throughout the state.
