Families in Crisis will be showing a film entitled “I am Evidence” at the Park Theater this Thursday, April 4, beginning at 6 p.m. An exhibit of real-life stories and quotes identifying why survivors of rape didn’t report the abuse will be displayed. Admission is free and open to the public.

The film focuses on the faces and stories of real people who have been impacted by the overwhelming amount of untested rape kits backlogged in evidence rooms, hindering the justice process. The film highlights how the United States criminal justice system has long mishandled this evidence.

“I am Evidence” sheds light on the individuals working to change the current backlogging situation and pursues the long-awaited judicial closure for sexual abuse and rape survivors. 

Personal, first-hand accounts of survivors create a deep emotional impact of how inaction has affected them. The audience follows these survivors as they trace the fates of their rape kits and re-engage in the criminal justice process.

This film experience contains content related to sexual violence which may not be appropriate for all audiences. Support will be offered during and after the event, if needed. The eye-opening film and presentation at the Park Theater will tell in-depth, true stories.
