On July 1, Senators Kirsten #Gillibrand, Senator Chuck #Grassley & Senator Ted #Cruz announced they will offer the bipartisan #Military Justice Improvement Act as an amendment to this year’s National #Defense Authorization Act.… #NDAA #MJIA #PassMJIA
From Senator Gillibrand's press release: "The Military #Justice Improvement Act would professionalize how the #military prosecutes serious crimes by moving the decision over whether to prosecute them to independent, trained, professional military prosecutors." #MJIA #PassMJIA
"Despite years of Congressional reforms, thousands of service members are raped & sexually assaulted every year. In many of those cases, the assailant is someone in the survivor’s own chain of command." -- #military #MST #MilitarySexualTrauma #MJIA #PassMJIA

Another thing #KavanaughHearings should make clear is systemic problem of a panel of mostly-old-men being charged with evaluating victims of sexual assault without expertise in such evaluation--meanwhile also being stakeholders in career advancement of perpetrators.
This is exactly what has been wrong with the military's system of addressing and adjudicating sexual assault. Key evaluations and decisionmaking is in the hands of those with direct conflict of interest, and without expertise needed to make fair, objective decisions.
Why we keep advocating for passage of @SenGillibrand's Military Justice Improvement Act #MJIA #passMJIA is to put decisionmaking in the hands of the military's legal experts instead of stakeholders in career advancement for perpetrators.
