Who is Natasha?

Natasha Alexenko is a sexual assault survivor who was recently highlighted in HBO's critically acclaimed documentary, Sex Crimes Unit. In 2008, nearly 16 years after she was violently attacked at gunpoint, her perpetrator was found through a DNA match, thanks to the dedication of New York City's Cold Case Unit. Natasha’s rape kit was backlogged for almost 10 years.

Natasha currently serves as the spokesperson for Natasha's Justice Project -a nonprofit organization that seeks to assist survivors of sexual assault through travel grants to testify at their related trials and end the nation's current rape kit backlog crisis. Natasha speaks at colleges and other venues across the country, striving to educate and inspire through her unique story.
