Students from Mt. Edgecumbe and Sitka High Schools joined community members, Sitka’s domestic violence task force, and a contingent of State Troopers, among others, as they marched through downtown on Thursday (3-27-14), as part of the 5th annual “Choose Respect” rally to raise awareness of domestic violence. The Sitka rally was organized by Sitkans Against Family Violence. It was one of 150 demonstrations scheduled to take place around the state, as part of  Gov. Sean Parnell’s “Choose Respect” campaign to prevent sexual assault and domestic violence in Alaska.
