“I Am Evidence” gives attention to a little-known injustice that harms survivors of sexual violence. The film reveals that thousands of rape kits remain untested in the United States, a huge barrier to healing for those seeking justice in the legal system. Throughout the raw, powerful documentary, the dignity and perspectives of survivors are prioritized.
This event is free and open to the public. The film will be followed by a panel discussion and Q & A session.
