One in three women as well as many men in the Coast Guard are going to fall victim of sexual assault and rape. We had enough of these attacks against our shipmates. Stand with members and veterans of the United States Coast Guard as we work towards eliminating sexual violence in the U.S Coast Guard.
While the Department of Defense has taken several initiatives to combat sexual violence in its ranks the United States Coast Guard, which falls under the Department of Homeland Security, is the ONLY military branch that does not have the same protection that the DoD has to help rape survivors. We want the United States Coast Guard to protect members within its organizations from falling victim of sexual assault and/or rape and to help survivors that so bravely came forward.
In their own words: Coast Guardsmen write about surviving sexual assault and rape. (external link)
