THE STORY:

A bit more than a year ago, I finally got the news that the student who had sexually assaulted me would be suspended for the remainder of my senior year. I was so relieved to hear this news and finally conclude a reporting and adjudication process that took over half a year from start to finish.

It took me around two and a half years to report my sexual assault and I would never have done it if a fellow student had not taken the time to talk to me and walk through the reporting and adjudication process. When I finally decided to report, I found the process to be confusing and unclear to the point that I had to send various emails asking clarifying questions. I wondered what a better reporting tool would look like, and this summer I got to be a part of creating that reporting tool.

Callisto is a sexual assault reporting system being developed by Sexual Health Innovations, a non-profit founded by a sexual assault survivor that works to create technology that advances sexual health and wellbeing in the United States. 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 the authorities 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.

This summer I participated in a focus group for Project Callisto and was struck by the survivor-centric focus of both the SHI staff and the product. This truly is something being built by survivors for survivors.

Sexual Health Innovations hopes to launch Callisto in the fall of 2015, but they need your help. SHI is currently fundraising so they can make this target date and support thousands of college sexual assault survivors. I’ve committed to raising $200 for ‪#Project Callisto‬ and hope you will consider reading more on my fundraising page and making a donation.
