PBS reports that the military needs to remove the chain of command from deciding the fate of those accused of sexual assault in the military. We agree. Listen to what our Advocates are saying.
Over the last two years, we have been working on the investigative report with CBS to shine light on the retaliation that many of clients experience as a result of their report. Join us in a call to action and raise your voice in support of all of our survivors.
Thae Ohu & Celeste Largo, two Marines and women of color, are in pre-trial solitary confinement. Both of these women reported a rape by their supervisor before being locked up. The military is trying to silence and break them, all while sweeping their rape allegations under the rug. This cannot stand.
To empower survivors of sexual violence by helping them find their voice and overcome barriers to obtaining justice, all while disrupting the cultural stigma surrounding the disclosures of these crimes.
We have 3 main focus areas.
1) Legal Advocacy on behalf of the Survivor
2) Community Outreach
3) Peer to Peer Support Network
What happens when you don't know where to turn? Our experienced Advocates understand you, because they've been there. And now we will be there for you. If you or a loved one has been affected by sexual assault while serving in the military, or were assaulted by someone in the military, give us a call. Through our training curriculum, legal assistance, and Congressional advocacy, we fight to disrupt the cultural stigma surrounding sexual assault.
Through our holistic and trauma informed training programs, we are able to engage law enforcement, District Attorney's, the military, schools, and community partners to increase reporting of these crimes and get justice for our victims.
Engaging Congressional Leaders has remained a forefront of our advocacy efforts. We leverage various contacts in order to effectively achieve our client's goals. Tackling sexual assault in the military is tough, but we are tougher.
Your generous support and contributions will help us fight for others. Thank you for everything!
