Dear friends and supporters of Rape Crisis,

Please continue to support our work and that of our Centres across England and Wales by asking ALL your parliamentary candidates to sign our Election Pledge for 2010 (see below).

Our Co-ordinator, Chris, will then collate the responses so we can make sure we continue to lobby and work with those candidates who are successful after the General Election.
