The Time is Now
America leads the world in protecting citizens' rights to liberty and equality, yet our country currently lacks baseline procedures for rape survivors depriving millions of Americans basic liberties. The Center for Disease Control reports that a staggering 25 million Americans are rape survivors -- a population nearly equal to the state of Texas. Americans urgently need a comprehensive Sexual Assault Survivors' Bill of Rights that standardizes the best practices drawing on innovation we've seen implemented across the country.
