What happened when we tested thousands of abandoned rape kits in Detroit | Kym Worthy

In 2009, 11,341 untested rape kits -- some dating back to the 1980s -- were found in an abandoned warehouse once used by the Detroit police to store evidence.

When this scandal was uncovered, prosecutor Kym Worthy set a plan into action to get justice for the thousands of victims affected.

In this powerful, eye-opening talk, Worthy explains how her office helped develop an innovative program to track and test these kits -- and calls for a national effort to help solve the problem of stockpiled rape kits.
