April is Sexual Assault Awareness month and we have multiple programs and activities happening. On April 16th the HBO Documentary “I am Evidence” (https://www.iamevidencethemovie.com/) will launch. The documentary I AM EVIDENCE tells the story of four survivors whose rape kits went untested for years, following them as they navigate their way through the criminal justice system and learn that so often, the system is broken. The film reveals the historic nature of the way we treat the crime of sexual assault in this country, and the positive effects that occur when perpetrators are held accountable and survivors are given an opportunity for healing and justice.
We would like to invite YOU to join our viewing party on April 16th at 7:45pm in The University of Akron Student Union 2nd floor Theater. We will have a panel discussion before the video (including Bertina King Akron Police Investigator, Cindy Bloom Director of Rape Crisis Center) and information tables so arriving around 7:15pm would be best.
