DC Rape Crisis Center Launches the DC Justice for Survivors Campaign (JSC)
The DC Rape Crisis Center has launched the DC Justice for Survivors Campaign (JSC) to address needed changes to the Sexual Assault Victims’ Rights Amendment Act (SAVRAA).
DC JSC believes that sexual assault survivors must receive fair and compassionate treatment from first responders, service providers and members of law enforcement and the justice system.
In order to ensure appropriate survivor-centered policies and improved treatment of and response to those individuals who report sexual assault in DC, we support the passage of B20-417, the Sexual Assault Victims’ Rights Amendment Act with a few critical amendments.
DC JSC invites you to join the campaign to make sure our city is a leader in supporting survivors and does not permit re-victimization by the very system intended to ensure justice and healing.
