- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The Alaska Native Justice Center is facing serious budget woes that may force it to close. Channel-2 News reports that the nonprofit is faced with cutbacks of federal money that may mean it will have to close just as it is set this year to celebrate 20 years of helping Alaskans navigate the justice system. The center helps a number of groups, including inmates released from prison in Anchorage successfully re-enter society. Center president Walt Monegan, who is a former Anchorage chief of police and public safety commissioner, says the center is hoping people will step up and help out the center. In the meantime, the center will depend on two grants and its savings to get by.
