CALIFORNIA FUNDING ALERT

Two bills are pending in the California legislature that would bring the state considerably closer to comprehensive rape kit reform. A.B. 3118 and S.B. 1449 together call for the first ever statewide inventory of untested rape kits and for law enforcement to submit all kits to a lab for DNA testing.

These reforms require state funding to be effective. The 2018 budget conference committee is deliberating right now what legislation should be funded. They need to hear from you that we must be funding reforms to support survivors and take dangerous offenders off the streets.

Contact the committee members and let them know these rape kit reforms are a priority and must be funded.
