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.

This film was heartbreaking to watch. God bless all of the victims and I hope the military steps up and stops this abuse.

I’m not an American citizen, however I think this is a societal problem and happens in probably most militaries, I think the US inspires democratic change around the world so if change is made here, a lot of other governments can start taking a look at and listening to soldiers who have been sexually assaulted and prosecuting perpetrators.

I support the women and men who have been sexually assaulted.

Sexual predators will continue to take advantage of the military as long as the military lets them. The military has to step up to the plate to stop them.

I was a victim of a revenge gang rape at 17 years old in Coronado in 1998. All over the in-house captain’s mass I was forced to witness and answer one question, in front of the entire day crew. Transfer requests denied after the bullying got physical, broke in my room and bleached , cut up all my uniforms. I was too scared to trust anybody. Eventually I was forced out when it was quietly found out and I was given a general under honorable fora personality disorder by a guy I never saw. I had an great record,loved the navy, and been treated for PTSD and anxiety since 2001, and the doctors found things in my lungs. I have never filed because when I tried, I was trested like dirt. Made to feel filty, and ended up in the hospital.

Things need to change and we need to be given a voice , I’m tired of living in shame because I don’t know how much longer I may have. I would love to see a change and to help anyway possible
