As of 05/06/2013, the Sexual Assault Training Oversight and Prevention Act has been referred to the Subcommittee on Military Personnel and is still awaiting further action. According to the Pentagon, there were more than 1,300 complaints of sexual harassment in the military last year. This is a problem that needs to be addressed. Sign the petition to show your support of this bill.

Imagine: you've joined the military to serve your country, to further your education, or to gain personal growth. You begin your journey with excitement and anticipation. But you are rudely awakened when you encounter instances of sexual abuse during your service.

Sadly, hundreds of thousands of women and men are sexually assaulted during their service terms. All too often these crimes go undocumented, and sometimes the victims are even punished for reporting them. By the Department of Defense's own calculations, 86% of sexual assaults went unreported in 2010 alone. A recent report estimated a 35 percent increase in the number of "unwanted sexual contact" incidents in the military in 2012.

As it is now, the military environment isn't conducive to addressing instances of sexual abuse. That's why we need legislation such as the Sexual Assault Training Oversight and Prevention Act (H.R. 1593), which would improve the prevention of and response to sexual assault in the Armed Forces.

Sign your name in support of making the military safer for our service members!

Dear Senator Mitch McConnell:

Individuals go into the military for myriad reasons — to pursue a career, personal growth, etc — but no one joins the Armed Services in anticipation of being sexually assaulted.

Not only have hundreds of thousands of men and women been sexually abused during their time in the service, but over 85% of those assaults went unreported. And the military environment doesn't make it easy for victims to report crimes. In fact, sometimes victims are even punished for attempting to publicize the crime.

We need to create an environment where sexual abuse can be discussed openly and victims can find support when they need it. Turning our backs on those who have stepped up for their country is detrimental to the military as well as society.

Please lend your support to H.R. 1593, the Sexual Assault Training Oversight and Prevention Act, which would improve the prevention of and response to sexual assault in the Armed Forces.

Thank you.
