A Free Documentary Screening of “I am Evidence” Set for Jan 31 at Greenwich Town Hall

The Center for Sexual Assault Crisis Counseling and Education, in partnership with HBO Films, the Joyful Heart Foundation, and The Connecticut Alliance to End Sexual Violence, is hosting a free documentary screening of “I Am Evidence.”

The film screening will be held at Greenwich Town Hall on Wednesday January 31, starting at 7:00pm (doors open at 6:30pm.)

This film was produced by Mariska Hargitay and explores the important issue of untested rape kits.

The film discusses the backlog of untested rape kits and how we can change our perspective on untested kits, societal approaches to rape, and police-community partnerships.

Post-screening, The Center will host a Q&A with panelists Laura Cordes, Executive Director of the Connecticut Alliance to End Sexual Violence; Sarah Haacke Byrd, Managing Director, Joyful Heart Foundation; Quentin Ball, Executive Director, The Center for Sexual Assault Crisis Counseling and Education; and Detective Christy Girard, Greenwich Police Department. RSVP here.
