Tell Congress: Take Action To Protect Survivors of Military Sexual Assault

The U.S. Congress must act swiftly to move the decision to investigate, prosecute, and punish sexual assault in the military out of the chain of command.

Every year, 19,000 service men and women are sexually assaulted while serving in the United States Military. But 86% of them never report their assault―too often because seeking justice threatens their safety, their job security and their future.

Seeking justice should never be a risk, and rape should never be an “occupational hazard.”

It’s time to take action so that survivors of military sexual assault are protected from such egregious acts and sexual predators are brought to justice. Survivors should not suffer retribution for speaking up.

Congress must amend the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) and move the prosecution of military sexual assault out of the chain of command.

Only Congress can change the UCMJ to create a real, working system for prosecuting sexual predators in the military.

Add your name to tell Congress to move criminal prosecution of military sexual assault out of the chain of command.

My mother was raped in the civilian world (she was never in the armed forces) , I see how much it affects her (she has suffered with PTSD, anxiety for over 20 years). I am 15 years old and cannot wait for the opportunity to join the armed forces. I am currently in Civil Air Patrol to hopefully give me a glips at the military. I want to join so badly; however, I now have to question if I should go in but, I cannot picture my future any other way! We need to protect the women and men that servie our contry well, the men and women who have aided in the process of giving me the freedom to write this comment on a petition. We MUST protect those against those few who like the “power” that rape gives them. Their will be no more swiping under the rug. We need justice! God protects this nation but, somethimes he needs help we must aid him and bring justice to the few men or women who have taken advantage of a situation and used their sex as a weapon. No more rape. The brothers and sisters of the armed forces need protection. We MUST do EVERYTHING in ones power to make a difference because one voice doesn’t work but, if everyone in our contry uses thier voice and starts to screem from the roof tops they will have to listen.

When i was still in the Army and all the units were made to watch The Invisible War i couldn’t get through the first twenty minutes. that was over three years ago. I truly wish i had finished it and went straight to S.H.A.R.P. These women were very brave to stand up an speak out more so than i was and i respect them completely.

Rape is NOT an occupational hazard!!! If you’re enabling the perpetrators, you are one yourself.

In the midst of this unbelievably horrific atrocity which tragically affects so many, HOLD ON TO HOPE…“Never doubt that a small group of concerned citizens can change the world…indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has” ~(Margaret Mead). UNITED, WE DEMAND protection and justice for all military men and women from MST NOW!!!

Rape is not an occupational hazard. Bring justice or find an independent justice system that will.

As a veteran of the USAF, I was sexually harassed, but lucky enough to never be assaulted. Rape is not an “occupational hazard”. It’s a systemic problem. Stop it!

I, as a human right activist, am signing this, because I hope it would bring justice to victims of sexual assaults in the military

Sexual assualt and Harrasment might be the most talked about and briefed against topic in history. But history shows we need it. Be the change.
