Prior Years

Anchorage, Alaska held a second reunification celebration in 2011 called “Celebrating Families.” Families who had been reunified for an eleven-month period from 2009 to 2010 were invited. Every family who was invited had their court case dismissed. Highlights of the event include a celebration at a local park cabin with family and supporters from community groups and state organizations, food, games, a performance by Alaska Native dancers, and gift bags containing a framed “Family” poem and flowers for each family. Our records show that Alaska has hosted 2 Reunification Events since 2010.
