A while ago, I posted some information about Christina hosting a benefit for RAINN… You can now view more information about the event from RAINN.org, the event is being held on September 9th in Washington D.C.
RAINNâ€™s national spokesperson, actress Christina Ricci, is headed to D.C. on September 9th to headline a special benefit for RAINN and help us launch a new public awareness campaign. Several leading members of Congress will also be in attendance.
Tracy Sefl, co-chair of the event alongside Katherine Miller, says, â€œI’m proud to be a longtime supporter of RAINN in their work to combat violence and offer critical help to its victims. Our event in the nation’s capital will bring together supporters from across the political spectrum, as sexual violence knows no borders. We all share a commitment to help RAINN continue and to honor the champions who do its critical work.â€
While in D.C., Ricci will join Scott Berkowitz, RAINNâ€™s president, and Evelyn Fortier, RAINNâ€™s vice president for public policy, for a day of meetings with members of Congress. They will be lobbying Congress to fully fund the Debbie Smith Act, which expands the use of DNA in rape investigations, and for measures to improve services for victims of sexual violence.
