A Step Forward

PAVSA, the Duluth Police Department and the St. Louis County Attorney’s Office have taken A Step Forward in supporting survivors and responding to reports of sexual violence.

Since announcing the elimination of its sexual assault kits backlog in May 2018, prosecutors, investigators and advocates have put in place safeguards to prevent future backlogs. This campaign highlights three important reforms.

Where will I see information about the A Step Forward campaign?
