Actions

In 2016, Rise spearheaded the passage of the Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights through the U.S. Congress, becoming the 21st bill in modern U.S. history to pass unanimously through Congress. Since then 18 similar bills have passed throughout the U.S. for cases adjudicated on the state-level, modeled on our federal legislation. Our work is measured by the tangible progress that we have made for the 40 million survivors in the U.S. so far. Moreover, we’ve had survivors reach out to us personally, expressing how important the passage of these laws have been for their own access to justice.
