2020 STATE LEGISLATIVE SESSION

KCSARC continued calling for changes to state law to further bridge the justice gap for sexual assault survivors, and take steps that will help prevent sexual assault in future generations.

We made progress on several fronts this session that will:

1. Further reduce the rape kit backlog

2. Implement recommendations from the Attorney General’s task force for state protocols and improved criminal justice response 

3. Create statewide Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE) protocols and access to training

4. Give every Washington K-12 student access to comprehensive sexual health education

WHAT'S NEXT?

We've made progress over the last few years, but barriers remain and there is important work left to do. 

We invite you to sign up for our Advocacy Alerts, which is the best way know what's ahead. You'll be joining other KCSARC supporters who choose to stay closest to our advocacy work, and most engaged when it's time to speak up for changes that remove barriers for survivors and support resources to help them heal.
