You Need To Watch “I Am Evidence”

By Ann Varner

HBO premiered a documentary called “I Am Evidence” on April 16. The documentary follows four sexual assault survivors and how they go through the criminal justice system. The documentary exposes the detrimental backlog of untested rape kits and the way sexual assault cases are handled by police departments. Mariska Hargitay produced this documentary. You may know her from the show “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit” where she is a lieutenant. Not only does her character play an advocate for survivors but she does the same in real life. The documentary aims to tell survivors that they have a voice and have not been forgotten.
