Comments Submitted:

Amy Campbell [Iowa Coalition Against Sexual Assault]
The Iowa Coalition Against Sexual Assault partners with culturallyspecific programs around the state to support survivors of sexual violence, including individuals who have been trafficked. We are concerned that this bill (HSB 34) as not developed in collaboration with the community it is intended to protect, and could in fact have other unintended consequences. We reached out to our partners in the Asian community for their input. They articulate these concerns better than we could, so I'm attaching them to my comments. Thanks for allowing us to submit comments.
