Sexual Abuse Reporting Should Not Have An Expiration Date!

This petition had 9,611 supporters

Rachael Denhollander, who was the first to publically accuse Nassar of sexual abuse, posed the question, "How much is a young woman worth?" Help us in the fight to end sexual abuse so that no woman ever has to ask this question again.

While we are so thankful for the passing of the Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act that occurred on February 14, 2018, there is still so much more that needs to be done in the fight to end sexual abuse! Please join us in advocating for the passing of the Child Victims Act, which will extend the statue of limitations to age 28 in criminal cases and age 50 in civil cases.

Studies have shown that many children do not report sexual abuse until long after it has occurred due to various reasons (i.e. incomprehension, shame, fear of retaliation, the misperception that the child is to blame, etc.). As such, we need to bring about policy that would allow for reporting to happen whenever the survivor is ready. Sexual abuse reporting should not have an expiration date!
