Thanks to your advocacy, Governor Newsom has signed AB 1455 into law!

VICTORY!
This action has been disabled due to Governor Newsom signing AB 1455 into law!

Right now, there is an undue burden placed on traumatized survivors of sexual assault to advocate for their own justice. This situation is made even more difficult when the perpetrator is a police officer. Thanks to the unprecedented immunity police officers enjoy in California, there is little chance of a law enforcement perpetrator seeing any real consequences for their abuses of power. 

AB 1455 (Wicks) takes the pressure off survivors of sexual assault by extending the statute of limitations, allowing a more realistic time frame for survivors to pursue legal action against their perpetrators. 

We told Governor Newsom that this is our chance to undue the burden placed on traumatized survivors of sexual assault and he listened!
