Male veteran sexual assault survivors speak out

The Violence Against Women Prevention Program (VAWPP), the Veterans Affairs and Military Programs and the Veteran Student Organization joined on March 27 for a forum on male military sexual assaults.

Two panelists from the MAVEN Foundation led the discussion about the effects and causes of military sexual trauma (MST). The MAVEN Foundation is a non-profit organization that raises awareness for veteran survivors of MST.
