There were an estimated 26,000 cases of sexual assault last year, but only 3,000 were reported. And when a survivor does file a complaint, the commander in charge has the ability to set aside guilty verdicts, return the attacker into the ranks, and in some cases even promote the attacker.
This legislation transcends party politics - with Republicans and Democrats signing on to support the bill. They understand that our service members deserve better, and they're willing to work together to make it happen.
Tell your Senators you won't accept anything less than a strong solution for military survivors of sexual assault. Keep up the pressure on your Senators to support this legislation. Ask them to stand with Senator Gillibrand.
