Rally for Adult Survivors Act

Safe Horizon, survivors, and lawmakers rallied for the Adult Survivors Act before the legislative session ends. Legislators have only 10 days to pass the bill. CVA survivors joined to urge legislators to open the lookback window to time-barred survivors who were over the age of 18 at the time of their abuse.


Adult Survivors Act

Safe Horizon supports the Adult Survivors Act which is proposed legislation that would create a special one-year lookback window to allow individuals who were 18 or older when they were sexually assaulted in New York State to file a lawsuit against the person who harmed them and/or the negligent institution. This bill is necessary because of the very short statute of limitations that most adult survivors of sexual assault currently face. Click Read More below for more information about Safe Horizon.
