This is a veteran and current service member-led protest. This is part of a national movement by service members (past and present) to bring awareness to sexual harassment/assault in the military.
Unfortunately, Vanessa Guillen cannot be here to tell us her story. However, she has inspired many service members to tell their own truths.
This protest is for our brothers and sisters in arms who have suffered. This protest is for our brothers and sisters in arms who continue to suffer.
Please help us bring national attention to the death of Vanessa Guillen and the millions of Military Sexual Trauma survivors and non-survivors who have yet to see justice served.


Our asks:
1. A civilian counterpart be appointed and given the authority to investigate alongside Military Investigative Services and given the authority to recommend prosecution
2. For active duty personnel to have the ability to report SHARP violations to the civilian counterpart and have their identity sealed from the Chain of Command until needed for court martial proceedings
3. Link CODIS to MEPS to prevent sexual predators from ever entering (credit Diana Danis and Service:women who serve)

Mascarillas son OBLIGATORIAS
Distanciamiento social es OBLIGATORIO

Esta es una protesta organizada por veteranos y miembros activos del servicio militar. Esto es parte de un movimiento nacional de miembros del servicio (pasado y presente) para crear conciencia sobre el acoso / agresión sexual en el ejército.
Desafortunadamente, Vanessa Guillén no puede estar aquí para contarnos su historia. Sin embargo, ella ha inspirado a muchos miembros del servicio a contar sus propias historias.
Esta protesta es en honor de nuestros hermanos y hermanas en armas que han sufrido. Esta protesta es por nuestros hermanos y hermanas en armas que continúan sufriendo.
Ayúdanos a llamar atención nacional sobre la muerte de Vanessa Guillén y los millones de sobrevivientes de trauma sexual en el ejército que aún no han recibido justicia.

Exigimos justicia.
Exigimos cambio.
El Congreso debe aprobar el proyecto de ley #IAMVANESSAGUILLEN.
