Voices from the backlog: Part 1
Community leaders engage the public in an open discussion of the status, ramifications, and outcomes of the Detroit Rape-Kit backlog. The event, held on April 19th, 2019 at the Detroit Institute of the Arts was the brainchild of LaQuetta Elle Travis, a survivor, activist, and poet who received notification that her rape kit had been tested almost ten years after she was abducted and raped at knifepoint. The rape-kit backlog is a nation-wide phenomenon whereby thousands of sexual assault kits sit, untested and uninvestigaged, in police storage--denying victims justice and increasing risk to the public. The panel, consisting of Mark Ferrah, Investigator; Rebecca Campbell, PhD; LaQuetta Elle Travis, activist; Eradajere Oleita, activist, Danelle Foster, victim advocate, and Willie E. Bell, Detroit Police Commissioner participate in a discussion and Q&A led by moderator, Kahlima Johnson, of the SASHA Center. You can learn more about Ms. Travis' activism at www.authorelletravis.com. If you have been sexually assaulted, there is help available.
