RAINN Congratulates President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris

Washington, D.C. – RAINN today shared the following statement on the 2020 election results from President Scott Berkowitz:

“We congratulate President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris on their historic victory. For years, both have championed policies to support survivors of sexual violence and bring perpetrators to justice. From his sponsorship of the Debbie Smith Act and the Violence Against Women Act to his leadership on the Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (SAKI), President-elect Biden has demonstrated his commitment to these issues. Vice President-elect Harris, too, has worked hard on behalf of survivors throughout her career, including her time prosecuting those who sexually abuse children.

We look forward to working with the Biden-Harris administration, as well as Republicans and Democrats in Congress, to finally clear the rape kit backlog and to protect children from exploitation and abuse. We hope that, with their support, we will see full funding for the Debbie Smith grant program, SAKI, the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force program, and local service providers who aid victims of sexual violence.”
