Help eliminate “Unbelievable”- like experiences for survivors of sexual assault and crimes!
Unbelievable (Netflix series, 2019), is an unfortunately and sickening reflection of how a combination of societal and individual bias, prejudice and insensitivity affects the system and community that is meant to protect survivors. The series reminds us to put survivors first and shows exactly how community can do harm, how officers/system can both hinder/hurt reports and/or help treat survivors with respect and dignity. Inspired by true stories, the series is a powerful testament of flaws in criminal justice system.
There are opportunities for us, as a community, to make sure we speak up and support legislations that help survivors. Raksha invites you to join in standing with survivors at this virtual advocacy event, taking place on February 8, 2021.
