Funding goes to support the screening of the documentary "The Invisible War" and to have the filmmaker visit our campus and give a speech!!

ABOUT THE MOVEMENT:

Invisible No More is a non-partisan coalition working to end sexual assault within the U.S. military and to help survivors of Military Sexual Assault heal.

Today, a woman serving in Iraq or Afghanistan is more likely to be raped by a fellow service member than to be killed in the line of fire.

The Invisible No More coalition seeks to ensure that the theatrical release of the film The Invisible War serves as a catalyst in creating a movement to cause lasting change in how the military handles sexual assault.  We engage with advocacy organizations, key policymakers, military leaders, and other stakeholders to raise public awarenesscoordinate policy, and energize the grassroots to change military policy and behavior.

While the Department of Defense claims to have a “Zero Tolerance Policy,” the numbers of sexual assault occurrences within the U.S. military have continued to rise.

  • Since 2006, more than 95,000 service members have been sexually assaulted in the U.S. military
  • More than 86% of service members do not report their assault
  • Less than five percent of all sexual assaults are put forward for prosecution, and less than a third of those cases result in imprisonment

The three main objectives of Invisible No More are to:

  •  Raise awareness
  • Effect political and cultural change
  • Serve as a means of healing for survivors of Military Sexual Assault

Our brave troops protect our country, our freedom, and our livelihood.  We can’t turn our back on them.  The 2.9 million active duty and reserve personnel in the U.S. Armed Services should be able to serve with dignity and pride, and without fear of rape.
