Caution the use of MeToo at-home kits

Dear community partners and members,

The Oregon Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence (OCADSV) cautions the use of the at-home rape kits provided by MeToo Kit company. The MeToo Kit company, as mentioned on their website "is founded on the principle that [survivors] should be able to take back control." However, OCADSV believes that the at-home kits have the potential to cause harm to survivors.

What is your most memorable story? 

One of the moments that has impacted us the most was sitting in court watching a young woman representing herself in a hearing for the contested Family Abuse Protection Act order. She spoke on her own behalf with confidence and strength. She did not allow the glares and muttered comments of her former partner to bother her, nor did the fact that he had an attorney to assist him.
