Joe Biden Will Guest Star On Law & Order: SVU — Find Out What The Very Important Episode Will Be About!
But this guest spot isn't just for fun, as the episode will focus on the fight to end violence against women. According to a press release from the White House:
"[T]he Vice President will tape an appearance on [the series] on the rape kit backlog and efforts to end violence against women."
The federal government estimated that hundreds of thousands of rape kits — which are instrumental in solving and preventing sexual assault crimes — sit untested in storage facilities across the country.
This is known as the rape kit backlog, which represents a lost opportunity to bring justice to a survivor of sexual violence.
Biden has been a longtime advocate for stopping violence against women, and we think it's great he's shedding light on the government shortcomings — all while engaging in some intense dialogue with Mariska Hargitay.
