In the United States, there are an estimated 400,000 sexual assault evidence kits that sit backlogged in evidence rooms. The purpose of this petition is to demand the US federal government provide the funds needed to analyze the backlog of sexual assault kits in every state. We cannot solve every problem, but as we all come together on this issue, we can make sure every past and future kit is analyzed.
With this in mind, Growing for Freedom will be building specialized labs where all future sexual assault kits will be analyzed.
Growing for Freedom is excited to have a solution that will be a three-step approach to finally solving this problem.
1. Sign the petition and share it with others
2. Make a donation so we can begin the process of building labs expressly designed to analyze past and future kits
3. Join our new social media platform called the Freedom Community that will open in 2020
Building labs will be one of the Freedom Community projects. The many past and future survivors of sexual assault need our help. By signing this petition and making a donation, we will be joining together to make sure the voices of survivors do not go unheard.
Please follow these three steps so that we can make sure each sexual assault kit will be analyzed, and the evidence then used to bring the perpetrators to justice.

There are hundreds of thousands of sexual assault evidence kits lying in evidence rooms without being analyzed. The reason they are not analyzed is due to a lack of funding.
We, the undersigned, demand that the US Congress pass laws allocating the funding needed so that all backlogged assault kits are analyzed.
