It’s Not Easy, But You’re Not Alone.

DRWVA Schimmel Press Conf

On Monday, January 30, DRW Victim Advocates attended a press conference with Wisconsin Attorney General, Brad Schimel and Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault, to support the new initiative, By Your Side – SAKI (Sexual Assault Kit Initiative).  Wisconsin and the AG SART have taken action to further support sexual assault victims and partake in a kit testing process that will ensure all sexual assault kits are prioritized.


Any survivor who has had a sexual assault kit collected and do not know if their kit was tested for the presence of DNA evidence can call 1-800-446-6564 or go to to initiate the process of locating their kits and exploring options for DNA testing. Survivors will also be connected with support services.
