Come stand with us as we DEMAND JUSTICE for the women of this state who have too long been ignored. Recently an audit uncovered 7,220 rape kits in Oklahoma have gone UNTESTED. WE DEMAND JUSTICE for all women subjected to sexual assault and whose attackers escape without recourse.

Oklahoma incarcerates HUNDREDS OF WOMEN EVERYDAY for standing up to their abuser, or more tragically, failing to. But 7,200 women who have been the victim of rape go to bed every night while their attacker's DNA sits on a shelf and that attacker goes free.

WE DEMAND JUSTICE FOR THE VICTIMS OF SEXUAL VIOLENCE. TELL our leaders TO #TESTTHEKITS!!!

WE DEMAND JUSTICE for #TondalaoHall and all women who have been incarcerated because they were terrified to stand up to their abuser and received exponentially harsher punishments than the men who actually harmed their children.

WE DEMAND JUSTICE FOR THE WOMEN INCARCERATED FOR FIGHTING AGAINST THEIR ABUSERS.

WE DEMAND JUSTICE FOR THE WOMEN WHO ARE FORCED TO GIVE BIRTH IN THE CUSTODY OF OKLAHOMA COUNTY BECAUSE THEY DO NOT HAVE $200 FOR BAIL. WE DEMAND JUSTICE FOR THE WOMEN WHOSE UNBORN BABIES ARE LOST DUE TO LACK OF MEDICAL CARE AT THE OKLAHOMA COUNTY JAIL.

The Sexual Assault and Forensic Evidence Task Force will meet at the Office of the Attorney General at 1 PM on July 12, 2018. We want to be there when they arrive and when they leave, signs in hand, in solidarity to let them know, WOMEN ARE SACRED, WOMEN ARE LIFE-GIVERS, WOMEN DESERVE BETTER. Right now women are victims of violent crimes at a much higher rate than any other group. While thousands of rape kits go untested by police and law enforcement agencies, those perpetrators continue to commit violent crimes against women.

Bring signs, banners, flags, symbols.

We will have speakers and an open mic.
