Decision Maker Response
Kirsten E. Gillibrand’s response
Mar 5, 2014 — I wanted to alert you to the need for urgent action to help pass the Military Justice Improvement Act. We are expecting a vote on the Senate floor perhaps as soon as tomorrow. We need you all to join with survivors of sexual assault and make your voices heard today to help build support for this important reform.
We have a strong majority of the Senate -- 55 Senators and counting -- who are publicly supporting this bill, just a few shy of the 60 we'll need to overcome a filibuster. Can you add your voice to help us win those few extra votes and get us over the finish line?
Please call, write or tweet your Senators right now, urge them not to filibuster justice for sexual assault survivors and to allow an up or down vote on the Military Justice Improvement Act.
Thanks for all you're doing to help us pass this important legislation so we can create an impartial system of justice within our military that is worthy of the sacrifices our brave men and women make for us every day.
