Welcome to the Alaska Native Justice Center,
The Alaska Native Justice Center (ANJC) was established in 1993 by CIRI as a tribal non-profit to address Alaska Natives’ unmet needs regarding the Alaska civil and criminal justice system in response to the increasing disproportionate rates of victimization, incarceration and other justice-related issues impacting Alaska Natives throughout Alaska.
ANJC’s Mission is to promote justice through culturally based advocacy, prevention and intervention initiatives to restore
dignity, respect and humanity to all Alaska Natives.
We provide services to all ethnicities and integrate Alaskan Native culturally based advocacy programs and intervention initiatives necessary to assist in the resolution of legal circumstances such as divorce, child custody, domestic violence/sexual assault, minor in consuming violations and adult prisoner reentry.
Our goal at the Alaska Native Justice Center is to help you
Find Your Voice and Find Your Way.
