Supporting Sexual Assault Survivors & Ensuring a Path to Justice

In 2014, we learned our state had thousands of untested sexual assault kits on the shelves of evidence rooms, each of them representing a survivor whose voice was never heard. To find justice for these survivors and to create a trauma-informed system, an incredible team of legislators, advocates, law enforcement, prosecutors, and providers, led by the voices of survivors and with the media raising awareness, teamed up to make meaningful and long overdue changes to our system so every survivor has a path to justice. A special thanks is due to the victims and survivors for their trust in us, as well as for their patience.
