We've all seen the headlines. One in five women and many men will be sexually assaulted during their time at college. Most survivors never report their assault, and those who do often find the reporting experience retraumatizing.
Our amazing supporters helped up meet our initial goal of $10,000 in the first 24 hours and make it to $20,000 in the first week. We'll need $200,000 to kickstart Callisto. Let's see if we can triple our initial goal and get to $30,000!
Callisto is an open-source third-party sexual assault reporting system. Callisto allows sexual assault survivors to complete an incident report online, receive a clear explanation of their reporting options, and then either directly submit the report to their chosen authority or save it as a time-stamped record. Survivors saving a record can log back in at any time to officially report their assault or can choose to have their report automatically submitted to their chosen authority if someone else reports the same assailant. Callisto is designed to create a more empowering reporting experience for survivors and increase the identification of repeat assailants, who commit 90% of campus assaults.
Sexual Health Innovations hopes to launch Callisto in the fall of 2015. Your donation will help us to make this target date and support thousands of college sexual assault survivors.
