“I pledge to rethink credibility”
By signing, I pledge to be part of the solution to rethink how our society and legal system assess the credibility of a domestic violence survivor’s story.
Whether I am a judge, lawyer, advocate, survivor, or simply care about this issue I understand that I can be part of the solution to make justice less elusive for survivors.
I commit to learning more about the impact of racism, trauma and poverty. I am open to learning and challenging biases I may have that can contribute to survivors not being believed. When I see biases in others, I commit to calling them in to open a conversation.
I stand with survivors and and committed to making our society and legal system a better place for them.

#RethinkCredibility highlights how the legal system’s failure to understand the intersections of racism, poverty, and trauma often results in a denial of justice for domestic violence survivors.
