Description

Please join A Safe Place, Inc. on Sunday May 27th at 5PM as we present, FREE TO THE NANTUCKET COMMUNITY, a screening of the film I AM EVIDENCE at the Dreamland Studio Theater with a community panel discussion immediately following. I AM EVIDENCE has won multiple awards for best documentary at several film festivals around the country and was featured at the 2017 Nantucket Film Festival – it will premiere on HBO in April.

 

Produced by actor, director, and Joyful Heart Foundation Founder & President, Mariska Hargitay (Law & Order: SVU), 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. 

 

We at A Safe Place are dedicated to our mission: To eliminate domestic violence and sexual assault in the Nantucket community while empowering every woman, man and child to live a life free from violence.  To this end, we offer the Nantucket Community free counseling and advocacy with the police, hospital and court, have a 24/7 emergency hotline and several prevention programs in the Nantucket schools.
