U.S. Commission on Civil Rights Announces Annual Enforcement Report Briefing And Speakers - UPDATE

 

With all ears and eyes on us right now, Washington is listening and we’ve got a chance to raise our voices and make sure that survivors of military sexual assault are never invisible again. 

The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights has decided to investigate military sexual assault in its annual enforcement report.

On Friday, Jan 11th, the USCCR is hosting a briefing in DC, featuring expert testimony on the issue.  But the Commission is also accepting written comments from the public, particularly current or former service members who have first-hand experience with the issue.  Join us in submitting statements and testimony that will officially be noted on the record

Public comments may be submitted until COB Monday, February 11, 2013 and may be sent by two ways: 

  1. by mail to 1331 Pennsylvania Ave, NW, Suite 1150, Washington, D.C., 20425
  2. emailed to publiccomments@usccr.gov

Thank you for bringing this information to me. I will be writing my letter and love that maybe my story and all those stories that got dismissed or ignored will see the light of day!
