The new End the Backlog.org:
The rape kit backlog is one of the most shocking demonstrations of how we regard the crime of sexual assault in our society. Rape kit testing can bring justice, often an integral part of a survivor’s healing, and it is vital in keeping rapists off the streets. And yet experts estimate that there are hundreds of thousands of untested rape kits across the country.”

I am so excited about the work Mariska continues to do in this field, her outreach, her many programs, her own healing retreats. I love to see a celebrity that does not give up, she speaks up!
