Every 98 seconds, someone in this country is sexually assaulted. For many victims of sexual assault, stepping out of the shadows and reporting the crime is traumatic enough.
On top of this, the evidence kits for many victims lay untested in police labs’ shelves for years on end before any justice is ever achieved. Countless victims are forced to lose work hours in order to attend doctor’s visits and attend to legal matters; medical
bills rack up and lost wages can turn into lost jobs.
