    • Meeting with survivors after their attack to understand how the attack happened, whether it was reported to the police, and the status of the police investigation
    • Obtaining medical records for use in court proceedings
    • Working with police to ensure all pertinent evidence is available for trial
    • Collaborating with state prosecutors to ensure a speedy and fair trial
    • Attending court proceedings to ensure survivors are represented effectively
    • Helping the survivor and their family pursue legal remedies not covered under criminal law, including payment of medical costs, custody suits, and damages for lost wages

Suggested post: Earlier this year, I signed a petition through change.org about passing a law to reduce acid violence in Uganda. My signature helped score a major #victoryoverviolence. But CERESAV still needs our support in ensuring justice for acid attack survivors! Please visit their website (http://ceresav.org) to learn more about this important cause and how you can help.
