Justice for Liz

To Kenya's Inspector General of Police:

We call on you to deliver justice for Liz including the immediate arrest and prosecution of her accused rapists and laying charges on the police officers who let Liz down. By holding these police officers to account for their failure to bring rape charges, you will send a strong message to police everywhere that rape is a serious crime, and that police must uphold the law or be punished. We call on you to take full responsibility and ensure Liz's case is a turning point to end Kenya's plague of sexual violence.

Justice for Liz
When 16 year-old Liz was beaten and gang raped, the police let the men accused of attacking her walk free after simply mowing the lawn as punishment for “assault.” When she was brave enough to admit she’d been raped to, and the scandal broke, one officer was transferred and no one has been sacked for their failure. And they're still out there, talking to victims everyday.

Now there's a plan that would make these men so famous for acting like a rapist's best friend that no police officer will ever do this again.

We can turn our amazing amazing community into a virtual global law enforcement agency and pressure those in charge to hold the officers to account for their actions. Together we’ll avalanche pressure on Kenya’s top cops with a social media blits, Kenya’s most famous singer writing a viral song inspired by our outrage, and billboards with officers’ faces across the country. Click on the right to get started right now.

PS: Liz is a pseudonym given by the news outlet that broke her story and has since been widely used. She is not pictured here.
