the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, inspiring the world with their thrilling fourth World Cup title victory and their fight for equal pay. Despite being the most successful team in women’s soccer history, the USWNT continues to endure inequities in compensation,

DEADLINE EXTENDED: Sign on to NDAA Conference Letter in Support of BCMR Reform to Better Support Survivors

As the NDAA heads to conference, please join me in sending a letter to the conferees in support of reforms to the boards of correction of military records (BCMRs) and discharge review boards (DRBs). The BCMRs and DRBs are an administrative system tasked
with evaluating whether servicemembers and veterans suffered adverse or unfair treatment while in uniform that deprived them of earned benefits. For instance, many military sexual assault survivors have been discharged less than honorably because of purported
“personality disorders,” without acknowledgement of the assaults. This makes it difficult to receive needed medical and psychological care from the military. These survivors can present evidence of their assaults to the boards, which have the power to correct
survivors’ records so that they access needed medical and psychological care.
