Urge Congress to Pass our Military Sexual Trauma Victim's Bill of Rights

MST Veterans are homeless at double the rate of any other veteran class. MST veterans commit suicide at much greater rates than non-MST vets due to their benefits being pulled because their Chains of Command retaliate against veterans who report Sexual Violence.

Why is this important?

I am an MST veteran who experienced retaliation, homelessness, and PTSD due to MST. The MST community is the most underserved and vulnerable class of veterans. Leading most of us to commit suicide.

The most PTSD claims come from MST.
The most suicides do to PTSD are MST.
Homelessness affects MST veterans at 2x the rate.
In every category, MST veterans are at the highest risk, yet no one is changing the laws.
Our Bill of Rights provide protections for MST Veterans around the Nation!

Reasons for signing

  • I am an Army Veteran with PTSD from MST.
  • I am also a survivor of Military Sexual Trauma. Much more needs to happen to help more veterans with healing. In addition, more needs to be done in the military to stop sexual assault!
  • I'm AD and have dealt with this. I am not diagnosed with MST or PTSD but I have been in the verge of not wanting to live anymore and have felt retaliation before. Another instance I reported sexual harrasing then assaulted by the superior I trusted the report to. Awareness needs to be raised and help for women after military service provided.
