Take Action on the Military Justice Improvment Act

Your Senators need to hear from you: act to address the outrageous epidemic of military sexual assault. Support the Military Justice Improvement Act (MJIA) because military survivors deserve justice.

We've all heard the terrible stories of rape, sexual assault and domestic violence in the military, compounded by survivors' lack of access to justice. Next week, the U.S. Senate will have the opportunity to vote on an amendment that will improve the military's response to these crimes.  The MJIA creates an independent, objective and non-biased military justice system worthy of the men and women in uniform.  Prosecuting sexual assault and domestic violence requires specialized training, and the MJIA would ensure that prosecutors have expertise in these crimes. 

Please join us in calling on Congress to support this vital legislation and to create a path to justice for military survivors.
