2018 Elections

KCSARC’s advocacy work on behalf of survivors puts us in a unique position to understand what laws and rules are – and aren’t – working in their best interests. We’ve examined policies that could improve rates of reporting and prosecution of sexual assault, such as extending and simplifying Washington’s statute of limitations, and ensuring rape kits are tested. 

We asked all King County candidates for WA State Senate and House to share their positions on these and other policies we consider priorities. Linked below are all responses received to date from candidates who will appear on the November 6, 2018 ballot.
