An Early Evidence Kit (EEK) is a DNA self-collection kit for survivors of sexual assault. After sexual assault, there may be DNA present on a survivor’s body or clothing. EEKs help survivors identify where DNA may be present and collect time-sensitive samples. DNA degrades with time, and EEKs may be used in conjunction with an in-person examination or without to support a survivor with evidence collection, for up to five days after assault. Our EEK was designed by survivors, with the help of sexual assault nurses, advocates, and lawyers.
