A campaign to reframe how we think about the credibility of a domestic violence and sexual assault survivor’s story.

“My client laughed as she recalled her ex raping her. It was completely unexpected, but she laughed because she was embarrassed and uncomfortable. The courtroom fell silent and the judge turned their body to look at her—we immediately knew that no one believed her testimony.”

-Lisa Rivera, NYLAG managing attorney.


#IamCredible highlights how survivors are harmed by outdated understandings of credibility. And how you can help.
