Planned Follow up Events on Military #MeToo Reaches Fort Bragg:
- Spring 2021: New Protocols for Sexual Harassment and Sexual Assault
- Fall 2021: New Protocols: Are they helping?
- Winter 2021: A Yearly Review of Military #MeToo at Fort Bragg
After the disappearance and murder of #VanessaGuillen, and the persistence of her family, and the social media outcry (#IAmVanessaGuillen) on similar injustice on sexual assault and sexual harassment in the military, the military is finally admitting fault and promising to address these military wide problems. We need to hold them accountable and can help them understand the problem at Fort Bragg. Please join us at our second Military #MeToo Reaches Ft Bragg Panel on Jan 7, 2021. It’s via zoom.
