Join Sen. Gillibrand In Support of Military Justice Improvement Act
Survivors of sexual assault in the military tell us time and time again that the reason they don't report sexual assaults is because the decisionmaking lies within their own chain of command. If we want to truly reform the military justice system and give victims of sexual assault a real chance at justice, we must remove this decisionmaking power from the chain of command and place it in the hands of independent trained military prosecutors.
Right now, survivors' voices are not being heard in Congress. Lend your voice in support of the Military Justice Improvement Act and make sure the voices of victims are heard.

So far, 55 Senators have expressed public support for the MJIA, with your help we can get to 60 votes so we can defeat a filibuster if needed.
