Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance is set to announce the results of several rape kits next week at John Jay College.

Vance’s office is convening representatives from jurisdictions across the country who tested more than 55,000 backlogged rape kits over the course of the D.A.’s $38 million initiative.

The day begins with a press conference to announce results of the program thus far, hear from survivors whose kits were tested, and call for legislative action and accountability to prevent future backlogs.

A summit follows, featuring multiple presentations and panel discussions with national experts in the field.
