Dear Senator Kamala Harris and Senator Dianne Feinstein,
We want you Senator Kamala Harris and Dianne Feinstein to author a bill reforming the National Defense Authorization Act and to change the court martialing system from Armed forces personnel to a Random Public Jury.
Sexual assault has been a problem forever and this is continued to be a problem in the United States military. 14,900 women in the military have been sexually assaulted in the last year. Also, every 98 seconds someone is sexually assaulted, and every 1-6 women in america have been sexually assaulted. Females ages 16-19 are 4 times more likely to be sexually assaulted than everyone else. The root causes of sexual assault in the military are the "man box", power roles in the workplace, and the objectification of women. Our action plan is going to make the consequences for the perpetrators more severe. It is addressing the objectification of women and unjust consequences. It will be more fair because the people in the community will have more power and say in what happens to the perpetrator. It will be harder to get away with sexual assault and will hopefully make cases and rates of sexual assault in the Armed forces go down. We want to author the bill because, as U.S. senators, you have power to author a bill reforming the National Defense Authorization Act for the fiscal year (2020-2021), introducing a new stricter policy that punishes the sex offenders. We want you to author a bill changing the National Defense Authorization Act by to altering the court martialing system from Armed forces personnel to a Random Public Jury.

Our Petition does not want to see the total reform of court martialing, because of the problems it may face for the self-sufficiency during times of War. This petition was created to reform court martialing in cases of sexual assault and sexual assault only.
