About the cause:
Enough SAID (Enough Sexual Assault in Detroit) is an independent collaboration between the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office, the Detroit Crime Commission and Michigan Women’s Foundation to bring justice to forgotten victims of sexual assault.
In 2009, more than 11,000 unopened, untested rape kits were found in a Detroit Police Department storage unit, representing thousands of unprosecuted sexual assaults, thousands of sex offenders still on the streets, and thousands of victims without the justice they deserve.
Economic constraints in Detroit and Wayne County have put this justice out of reach. But these victims shouldn’t have to wait another day.
It has been granted federal and state government funding to get testing started, but 2,300 unopened kits still remain. Help us raise the money to test these kits, and investigate and prosecute the cases. Every victim deserves justice. Help us get that justice and make our community safer for everyone.
