Photo: Taking the pledge

The Thunder Mountain High School boy's basketball team sign a pledge against violence toward women and girls as part of the Coaching Boys into Men program they have joined. The pledge stated: "I pledge to never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women and girls." The Juneau-Douglas Crimson Bears signed the pledge also, as did Governor Sean Parnell, who spoke to the fans in attendance. In 2009 Parnell pledged that Alaska would take every step necessary to stop the epidemic of domestic violence, sexual assault and child sexual abuse in Alaska. Choose Respect has grown from 18 communitites at its start, to more than 120 today. Coaching Boys into Men has been championed by the Falcons and Crimson Bears, with many opposing teams taking the pledge while in Juneau and local middle school sports teams becoming involved as well.
