Battling the Storm Within

Progress and success with Bill SB1422 in CA by removing investigations and prosections of military sexual assualt cases from the chain of command.

Earlier this month, we took a stand in California, and together, proved that we are #NotInvisible!

Thanks to supporters just like you, Governor Jerry Brown heard us loud and clear, and signed California State Senate Bill 1422 into law.

This marks the first piece of state legislation to remove investigations and prosecutions of sexual assault cases within state military departments from the chain of command. California Senator Alex Padilla took up this fight by introducing SB 1422. The bill received bipartisan support and passed through the State Senate with a unanimous vote of 36 to 0, and just last week it was signed into law!

While Washington has remained divided and inactive, you stood up in California and made a real difference. Together, we are making history.

But our work is far from done.

Now, more than ever before, we need to continue to lift up the voices of courageous #MSA and #MST survivors, like those we heard from in The Invisible War, and demand action in every state.
Tweet a message of support, and show other states that the time to act is now. Our fight is far from over!
Thank you for your continued support. Together, we are driving a nationwide movement.

Together, we are #NotInvisible.
