Detroit Branch NAACP says
Did you know that more than five years ago, 11,341 unopened, untested rape kits were found in a Detroit Police Department storage unit? Enough SAID (Enough Sexual Assault in Detroit) was formed to raise money for the testing of the kits, as well as the investigation and prosecution of these forgotten crimes. To date there are still 1,341 kits that need to be tested and each test is $490 to process, will you join the Challenge?

Join the conversation!

1. Who should be held responsible for the back log of rape kits? The City of Detroit/Detroit Police Department, Wayne County or both?

2. Before the launch of the 490 Campaign were you aware of this issue?

3. Do you think rape victims should pay a fee to have their rape kits processed?

4. Should victims be monitarily compensated for the delay in processing rape kits?

5. What type of services do you think should be offered to the victims?

6. Do you think it's the responsiblity of the government to provide sole funding for processing the rape kits?

This is not a panel presentation, but an opportunity for small group discussions about a very important issue. We hope that you will join us by donating a miminum of $10 to this effort to have the remaining rape kits tested. For more information you can visit:
