2014 Detroit Backlog Celebration
Description: In 2009, the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office discovered 11,304 untested rape kits sitting in a Detroit Police Department storage facility, representing—at the time—the largest known backlog in the United States and thousands of lost opportunities for healing and justice for survivors. Today, $4 million in state funds have been granted to Detroit to end its backlog. $150,000 has been raised in private funds to investigate leads and prosecute these crimes. 1,600 kits have been tested and 100 potential serial rapists identified.For three years, Joyful Heart has been part of the collaborative partnership between prosecutors, law enforcement, researchers, city officials and advocates who have made rape kit testing a priority in Detroit. And this week, members of the Joyful Heart team, including our Founder & President, Mariska Hargitay, were honored to be in Detroit to celebrate this progress and address the work that is yet to come. - I thanks go to & see more at: http://joyfulheartfoundation.org/events/marking-detroits-progress-end-rape-kit-backlog#prettyPhoto
