(1/11)The National Task Force sent a letter to Senate Leadership today. Read the full statement here, read excerpts below.
(2/11)We have grave concerns about the way the @senjudiciary, under current leadership, has failed to take into account the lessons learned through the implementation of VAWA over the past 24 years.
(3/11)If @senjudiciary is not willing to engage in a process that upholds the dignity and safety of a person who has come forward to report that she was a victim of sexual assault, then they can’t pretend to care about VAWA.

Sometimes it takes us awhile to come to terms with our past.

Sometimes it takes years.

Sometimes it takes decades.

Fairly recently, I found myself having to reckon with my own past.

I accidentally opened the lid on a box hidden deep in my brain and examined the memories inside.

It took me by surprise, and I couldn't get the lid back on quick enough to stop myself.

This is really hard to write. I’m a survivor of childhood sexual assault. I saw how Professor Hill was treated. I also went to law school. Childhood survivors, sadly, have a higher chance of repeated sexual assaults as adults bc we have low self esteem & are

If the FBI did look into the case as Democrats demand they'd be speaking to you, Kavanaugh, and your named witnesses. Of the 4 parties involved, three claim Kavanaugh's innocence. So, how exactly is that going to help your case? It doesn't because your case falls apart.
