Police across Canada do not believe almost 1 in 5 sexual assault victims. I was one of those disbelieved victims. Help me in my legal fight against the police’s systemic discrimination against sexual assault victims.
I am a victim of sexual assault. When I reported it to the police, the detective who interviewed me did not believe me. My file was closed and classified as “unfounded”. A recent Globe and Mail report revealed that police across Canada regularly dismiss sexual assault complaints as “unfounded”. Almost 1 in 5 sexual assaults are dismissed as unfounded. The report and my full story, including the video of my interview with the detective, can be found here: https://tinyurl.com/zlgqqrh.

I am now suing the London Police Service for systemic discrimination. I need help covering my legal fees and expenses and to protect me against any award of costs that the police might seek against me for bringing this case. I will not recieve any money from this fundraiser - all of it will go to my legal fees.
I am hoping my case can bring about real change to how law enforcement agencies across the country treat victims of sexual assault.
