Alaskans with disabilities deserve respect, and to be equal to everyone else. That means living a full life, free of abuse and neglect. The Governor’s Council on Disabilities & Special Education and the Disability Law Center of Alaska worked together with self-advocates to share this important message.

To report abuse or neglect of a vulnerable Alaskan, call Adult Protective Services at 1-800-478-9996 or file a report online. Watch this important PSA with Jamie Kokoszka and Ian Miner Closed Captions and Open Captions.
