CALIFORNIA ACTION ALERT. Reform was vetoed. Speak out.
California recently enacted a law calling for the first-ever count of untested rape kits. This is a significant victory. However, the governor vetoed a bill that would have required newly collected kits to be submitted to a crime lab and tested in a timely manner. Write the governor to show your disappointment and call for action.
Not in California?
To end the backlog of untested rape kits in the United States and ensure that it never happens again, state, and federal rape kit policies must change. We need your help.
