In listening to an individual’s story, your response can have an enormous impact on that person’s healing journey. We wanted to point you to some tools that can help you support someone who shares their experience.
Last night, our Joyful Heart community shared a powerful experience. At the NYC premiere of @IAMEVIDENCEthemovie, we gathered with activists, advocates, survivors, and supporters who have one thing in common: their commitment to ending the rape kit backlog. We want to give our sincerest thanks to all those who attended the screening or spread the word, the incredible team of filmmakers, and most importantly, the survivors who lent their stories to this project. Together, we can #endthebacklog.
"The backlog is one of the clearest, most shocking demonstrations of how we regard these crimes in society." Make sure you're following @IAMEVIDENCEthemovie to learn about @therealmariskahargitay's new documentary, #IAMEVIDENCE.
Today's the day! We're so proud of our Founder and President @therealmariskahargitay, whose documentary #IAMEVIDENCE premieres tonight at the Tribeca Film Festival in NYC. We are so grateful to Mariska and her team for shedding light on the issue of the rape kit backlog. | Repost @iamevidencethemovie with @repostapp #IAMEVIDENCE tells the story of four survivors whose rape kits went untested for years. Our world premiere is at the @TriBeCa Film Festival on 4/24. Stay tuned for ways you can see the film and help #endthebacklog in your community. #Tribeca2017

"I feel they teach girls to cover their selves [sic] but they don't teach boys to respect women." NWLC's report on sexual violence and school pushout for girls is a must-read. More at #SAAM #LetHerLearn

This quote has become my mantra since December 2015 but, I guess I should back up a little and start this post from the beginning.
