The Anchorage Daily News and ProPublica spent two years investigating sexual violence in Alaska and why the situation isn’t getting better. The project, part of the ProPublica Local Reporting Network, revealed systemic problems across Alaska — and potential solutions. The series was awarded the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for public service, along with many other national and regional honors. A related series, "Unheard," was published in 2020.
