October 14, 2017 -- AB41 is signed!

It took many years and countless hours of work from advocates, but we did it!
 
Yesterday, Governor Brown signed AB 41 into law, which means that survivors of sexual assault are one step closer to justice. We will finally learn how many rape evidence kits are untested in California and why they have not been tested. 
 
You helped make this possible. 
 
If you added your name to our petition, forwarded our emails, or had a conversation with friends about the rape kit backlog, you helped focus attention on this crisis. I’m so grateful to have your support in the fight. 
 
Our new law will help make real headway towards addressing California’s rape kit backlog. You can be sure we’ll keep fighting until there are no untested rape kits left in California.
