Two friends of the Sex with Timaree podcast (James Hesky and previous guest Mike Rainey), are joining force together to take a very practical aim at combating rape culture. You can help by donating and by signal boosting so others can know about this project as well.
From their fundraiser page: End the Backlog is a program within Joyful Heart Foundation and its purpose is to shine a light on the backlog of untested rape kits in the United States. According to EndTheBacklog.org, when tested, rape kit evidence can identify an unknown assailant, confirm the presence of a known suspect, affirm the survivor’s account of the attack and discredit the suspect, connect the suspect to other crime scenes and exonerate the innocent. The backlog of rape kits is estimated to be in the hundreds of thousands in the United States, which severely decreases the chances of rapists being prosecuted for their crimes. Please help us work towards the goal of ending the backlog and bringing justice to those who deserve it. If you have any questions, please contact Mike Rainey and James Hesky via email at BacklogFundraiser@gmail.com
