Rental: "I Am Evidence" presented by Hilltop Community Resources and VAST
Hilltop Community Resources teams with VAST to present the award winning documentary film "I Am Evidence" and a discussion panel on the film and topic.
I AM EVIDENCE tells the story of four survivors whose rape kits went untested for years, following them as they navigate their way through the criminal justice system and learn that so often, the system is broken. The film reveals the historic nature of the way we treat the crime of sexual assault in this country, and the positive effects that occur when perpetrators are held accountable and survivors are given an opportunity for healing and justice. I AM EVIDENCE has won the audience award for Best Documentary Film at both the Provincetown and Traverse City Film Festivals.
Along with the film, a panel will discuss the elements covered in the film. The panel will be comprised of:
-Tammy Stroup, Ridgway Marshall
-Justin Perry, Ouray Chief of Police
-Lance Allen, Investigator, Colorado Bureau of Investigation
-Jackie Seivers, Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Services Coordinator, Hilltop
-Angela Goforth, San Miguel Resource Center
