Take action. Tell the Senate we need reform. Add your name.
We learned last week that the epidemic of sexual assault in the military is more pervasive than we even knew, and we knew it was bad. In the last two years, sexual assaults are up 30%, to 26,000 instances. The news also broke that the officer in charge of the Air Force’s Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program was himself arrested for sexual battery.

We can’t allow this to continue.

That's why this week I’m introducing a bill that will reform how the military handles sexual assault cases, and take on the culture that perpetuates criminal behavior.

Letting this injustice continue fails the servicemen and women, sons and daughters, husbands and wives, who have sacrificed so much for our freedom.

We must do better by them and we must do it now. Will you join me and Senators Franken, Blumenthal, and Boxer in calling on the Senate to right this wrong?

Click here to urge the Senate to pass my bill so we can bring justice to the victims of sexual assault, and accountability to those who perpetuate these crimes.

I recently held the first Senate hearing on this issue in almost 10 years. Editorial boards at newspapers across the country are behind us.

We have the momentum, we have the will, and we are on the side of justice. Now we need to speak out to fix a broken system that contributes to a culture that perpetuates too many assaults and too little accountability.

Click here to add your voice and call on the Senate to pass my bill without delay.

We owe this – at least this – to the men and women who have given up so much for us. They deserve this most basic level of respect and justice.

Thank you,

Kirsten
