From 34th District Democrats: The August monthly meeting will include a very special program. Our very own Leah Griffin will provide a very important and inspiring program that we think you won’t want to miss! Leah is our KCDCC Committee Rep and a school librarian who works on sexual assault policy reform at the state and federal levels. In 2015, she was appointed to the Sexual Assault Forensic Examination (SAFE) Task Force in the Washington legislature with the aim of solving the myriad of problems survivors encounter navigating the justice system in Washington State. She also helped write and lobby for the Survivors’ Access to Supportive Care Act with Senator Murray and Representative Jayapal to increase access to Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners in hospitals. Leah connects her work to her community by working with the King County Sexual Assault Resource Center, Legal Voice, RISE, and Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest.
Leah will speak about the state of sexual assault legislation and reform in Washington and her advocacy for women. She will address the issues survivors face, what has been accomplished, and what’s next.
Content Warning: Please Be Advised That There Will Be Discussion Of Subject Matter Concerning Sexual Assault.
Our potluck social begins at 6:30pm and the business meeting will follow at 7pm. Leah’s presentation and Q&A will follow. Please come out and learn what’s going on in this critical space.
