WUSA 9 News Segment on the Backlog Nominated for an Emmy Award
We are so proud of our friends at WUSA 9 in Washington DC for fighting so hard to air this story on unprocessed rape kits. Their hard work and dedication has certainly paid off as they have been nominated for an Emmy Award for the above report. I truly believe that ending the backlog will come as a result of the general public acknowledging the issue and refusing to let this public health issue continue. Getting the message out to the masses is what the media does best. We have to continue to support their efforts to talk about an issue that people tend to avoid. We are proud to partner with advocacy groups like Joyful Heart Foundation, RAINN and NCVC to support survivors and end the backlog.
