On Tuesday August 25th dozens of concerned SOL Reform advocates met in the Harrisburg area to develop a plan for successfully getting SOL Legislative Reform done here in PA. The meeting was hosted by PCAR (PA Coalition Against Rape) and chaired by PCAR’s CEO Delilah Rumburg, and  Vice President of Public Relations,  Kristen Houser. Other attendees included PA House Reps. Mark Rozzi and Tom Murt, Marci Hamilton, constitutional attorney, representatives from PDAA(PA District Attorneys’ Association), Jennifer Storm, PA’s Victim Advocate , and FACSA’s VP Tammy Lerner and Communications Coordinator Marie Whitehead as well as several other advocates.
What was obvious from our meeting is that we are not alone in wanting significant changes in current PA legislation that offers roadblocks to victims obtaining justice for the crimes committed against them. Our next steps are to finalize plans for actions that we all will carry out in the next several months. More to follow.
