Test400K: Test400K is a nonprofit organization that focuses on advocating for the 400,000 untested rape kits across the country to be tested so cases can be closed and victims can be given a semblance of peace. Some of these kits date back more than 30 years. The $1,200 cost of testing the kit is part of the problem, but the inherent sexism in the police business is a large part of it as well. It would now cost half a billion dollars to have all of the rape kits tested. (Source:test400k.org/our-history)
