STAR - Standing Together Against Rape

Donation Goal: $10,000

STAR

Standing Together Against Rape (STAR) has been a presence in Anchorage, Alaska for over 40 years.  Starting with two women answering phone calls in their basement it has evolved into a 24-hour crisis intervention agency.  Programs and funding have come and gone in the decades that STAR has been in operation, but one service remains consistent.  

​The heart of STAR’s client services is the state-wide crisis line, which is staffed 24 hours a day including weekends and holidays.  Callers can obtain information regarding reporting options, healthcare referrals, support and information on a variety of recovery topics.  Most importantly, callers can speak confidentially and anonymously about the violence they have experienced.  Both primary and secondary victims call the crisis line as well as medical and other social service professionals. Typically, STAR receives over 2,000 crisis line calls each year.

STAR's Philosophy
Sexual assault is a crime of power and control, not a crime of pleasure and passion. Sexual assault is any unwanted sexual contact. Sexual assault does not discriminate; it crosses all gender, race, age and social-economic barriers. Sexual assault is not “caused by” or “brought on by” the victim; it is the sole responsibility of the person who harmed. 

STAR's mission is to prevent sexual trauma and provide comprehensive, collaborative crisis intervention, advocacy, and support to victims/survivors, their families, and our communities.

The Gold Nugget Triathlon, Board of Directors,  plans to match all donations up to $5000.00.
