ACT NOW: Support Victims of Military Sexual Trauma
Support Victims of Military Sexual Trauma

Because many sexual assaults go unreported or are not prosecuted, survivors often struggle to prove the sexual assault occurred, and thus cannot access the benefits they deserve. The Ruth Moore Act changes the standard so that survivor testimony is sufficient proof to access disability benefits for military sexual trauma. Send Congress a message: We must protect and serve the women who protect and serve the United States!

Your messages were clear: we need strong laws to prevent trafficking, protect survivors and prosecute those responsible for these crimes. The work of Dreamers gets results!

For more updates about President Obama's Executive Orders: Federal Registry. Thanks to all those Dreamers who took action and be sure to sign up for future updates and action opportunities!
