This plan builds upon the work that began with our first plan that was developed in 2010. As with the first plan, the pathways outlined here provide a state-level roadmap for the primary prevention of violence in Alaska. Through this plan we will be better able to support educators, parents, youth, researchers, leaders, and communities to work collaboratively to promote safe communities and help prevent violence. The six pathways in this plan work together to strengthen and reinforce positive norms and create a new narrative for our state, one of respect and non-violence. The plan uses a strengths-based approach that is built on research and best practices using the best available evidence.
