Governor Rick Scott cuts funding for rape victims.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness month, a time for empowering victims of sexual assault. However, this month also brings a sense of loss.
Only a few days ago, Governor Rick Scott vetoed additional funding for 30 rape crisis centers throughout the state of Florida. This is a huge blow to our community. The Crisis Center of Tampa Bay helps victims throughout Hillsborough county by offering free exams, initial counseling, and medication. This additional funding would have provided the added support so many victims need, and allowed our crisis center to expand its services.
