Thanks to everyone who came out to Noise Records yesterday. We matched the generous donations made by all of you and so together we raised $172 to help end the backlog of hundreds of thousands of untested rape kits across the United States.
Special thanks to Sara at Noise for hosting us, and Burner Herzog & WOE for performing.
If you weren’t able to make it out, you can still help by donating or getting involved at endthebacklog.org
Two rape kit reform bills, S.B. 1449 and A.B. 3118, are pending in the California legislature. S.B. 1449 has passed the Senate and will be going to the Assembly floor for a final vote and A.B. 3118 has passed the Assembly and will be going to the Senate floor for its final vote.
Please contact your state legislators now. Urge them to vote Yes on S.B. 1449 and A.B. 3118 before August 31.
