I Am Evidence


Thursday, June 29 - 7:00 p.m.

I Am Evidence, a feature length documentary produced by Mariska Hargitay and HBO, will be premiering on HBO in early 2018. It is about the backlog of hundreds of thousands of untested rape kits across the United States. Through a character-driven narrative, the film brings much needed attention to the disturbing pattern of how the criminal justice system has historically treated sexual assault survivors.

Following the film, there will be a panel discussion with a group of experts, including the Cleveland Plain Dealer reporter who sparked the investigation. A representative of the Joyful Heart Foundation will moderate the discussion.

Donations: $10 per person and $5 per student with ID. Click HERE to reserve your seat. All donations will benefit victim service agencies in Central Ohio.

Presented by Drexel Theatre in partnership with Joyful Heart Foundation, National Council of Jewish Women, Columbus section Sexual Assault Response Network of Central Ohio, and YWCA Columbus.
