After survivor and activist Amanda Nguyen learned her rape kit could be destroyed even if the statute of limitations on her case hadn’t yet been reached, she took action. That action led her to create RISE – an organization dedicated to helping ordinary citizens pen their own rights into laws. She joined the podcast to reflect on her journey, some of the most impactful laws they’ve passed, and how they’re gamifying the lawmaking process to get more people involved. Tune in to hear her talk about the resources RISE is providing survivors as gender-based violence increases during COVID-19.
