I'm helping to raise money to help end the backlog of rape kits nationwide.
Nationwide, an estimated 180,00 rape kits are backlogged — sitting on shelves unprocessed, for lack of money and/or will. That’s 180,000 rape victims who went through a long and invasive DNA collection process at the hospital, assuming something would be done with that evidence, never imagining that it would be shoved onto a musty shelf to sit for years … 180,000 people who are still waiting for justice … and 180,000 rapists still out there.
That's Natasha on the left. Her rape kit sat for 10 years before it was processed. Finally it was, and her rapist is now in prison for 56 years.
Will you help me support Natasha's Justice Project, which is doing amazing work to end this backlog?
You can help in 2 ways:
1. Make a donation right here. It'll go directly to this awesome organization. Just click the Donate button to the right.
2. Join my fundraising team, by clicking the "Join the team" button on the right side of the page. This will let you create your own fundraising page, which will be part of the Ask a Manager fundraising team.
Or do both!
