URGENT: Take Action to Prevent Sexual Assault

A new criminal scandal at Lackland Air Force Base has brought the issue of sexual assault in the military to a boil. At least 38 female trainees at Lackland say they were raped or sexually assaulted by their instructors. Many did not come forward for years out of fear of retaliation from their superiors. To make matters worse, I just learned that 1 in 4 young women who join the US military will be raped or sexually assaulted and 1% of men who enlist will have the same experience.

We need to take action. Join some of these survivors in telling the Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee Buck McKeon that enough is enough. We have the chance to make our voices heard!
