Press Conference: Eliminate the Statute of Limitations

  • Minnesota State Capitol 75 Rev Dr Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard. Saint Paul, MN, 55155 United States (map)

Join Rep. Ilhan Omar, Reviving the Islamic Sisterhood for Empowerment, Break the Silence, and community leaders as we introduce a bill to eliminate the statute of limitations for reporting sexually violent crimes.

We know more now about psychological trauma and the way memories can be repressed for decades. We see how society has silenced survivors by blaming them and shaming them for what happened. 

We seek to end the statute of limitations to empower survivors with choices - that the choice to report their experience is always there for them if they want to, and if not, that's okay too.

The press conference will be held in the Capitol Press Conference room B971 (in the basement).
