#MeTooMilitary Stand Down at the Pentagon


Join fellow service women, veterans and supporters on Monday, Jan. 8, 2018, from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m., outside the Pentagon Metro Station in Arlington, VA for a #MeTooMilitary Stand Down. Service women and men, veterans and all supporters and allies are invited to tell their stories and raise awareness about the sexual assault and harassment epidemic in the military.

The following participating organizations are joining SWAN for the Stand Down:
Protect Our Defenders
Vietnam Veterans of America Women Veterans Comittee
The Military Law Task Force of The National Lawyers Guild
Common Defense

As the #MeToo movement has swept other industries in the country, and powerful men who used their status to abuse subordinates are being held accountable for their actions, we believe it is time for our voices to be heard and for the #MeToo reckoning to come to the military.

When: 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. Monday, Jan. 8, 2018
Where: Pentagon Metro Station, 2 S Rotary Rd., Arlington, VA 22202
Who: All are welcome; service women, women veterans, our supporters and allies. If you support our troops and want to see the military brass be held accountable for their failures and complicity when it comes to sexual assault and harassment in the military, join us.
