“ Justice Should not Depend on Geography. ”
During my time as an undergraduate at Harvard, I became a rape survivor. Clear and accurate information about my legal rights as a survivor was hard to find. My rape kit, along with many other survivors like me, was set to be destroyed much earlier than the statute of limitations. I remember walking in to the area rape counseling center, and found that the waiting room was completely full. At that moment, I realized I could accept the injustice or rewrite the law. One of these things is better than the other. From that experience, I fought to pass the Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights through Congress.
