Antya is a designer and advocate working at the intersection of survivors and health professionals in the aftermath of sexual assault.  In collaboration with co-founder Lona Vincent and an amazing community of non-profits, social workers, medical professionals, political leaders, and legal experts, Antya is working on an integrated resource — a redesigned sexual assault evidence kit and a digital app. For survivors, this project aims to improve accessibility, transparency and the experience of finding and getting kits. For healthcare providers, it will make it easier to administer kits, allowing them to provide better, trauma-informed care to patients in and out of the emergency room.
