Right now, hundreds of thousands rape kits collected after a woman was sexually assaulted sit untested in evidence lockers.

There is no federal law requiring they ever be processed.

That needs to change.

We need a federal law requiring rape kits be tested within 30 days.

When three cities implemented programs to process EVERY rape kit collected from victims, the results spotlighted the damage done by unprocessed evidence.

- 1,313 serial rapists discovered
- linked to crimes in 40 states
- offenders tied to as many as 17 assaults

Worst of all, offenders identified by rape kits that sat untested for years were discovered to have committed numerous additional sexual assaults.

Entirely preventable sexual assaults. Evidence to prevent them. No law requiring it be processed.…
We need a federal mandate.

Test every rape kit within 30 days.

The failure to process evidence collected from sexual assault victims is a complete sin. A national shame.

This has to change.
