The experiences of current SAKI Grantees can provide valuable insight for jurisdictions that are beginning to shape their initiatives. This peer-to-peer resource provides jurisdictions developing initiatives and new victim advocates with examples of how cold case victim advocates on the multidisciplinary team can work with community- and system-based advocates, community groups, and stakeholders to help ensure victim engagement activities proceed in a victim-centered, trauma-informed way.
Funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, the Sexual Assault Kit Initiative aims to create a coordinated community response that ensures just resolution to sexual assault cases. Through this program, funding is provided to support multidisciplinary community response teams engaged in the comprehensive reform of jurisdictions approaches to sexual assault cases resulting from evidence found in previously unsubmitted sexual assault kits.
