#MeToo Bill

untitled_design__31__720.jpg

Your DGB for today is to contact your Senators and Representatives and tell them to vote yes on the #MeToo Bill.

The #MeToo movement has swept the United States and has touched everywhere from Hollywood to corporate America, conversations at the dinner table to Capitol Hill. What makes the sexual harassment especially horrific in DC is their reporting policy, which sounds a lot like an attempt to shut down all conversations and dissuade reporting. You can find out more about the policy here: http://thehill.com/homenews/sunday-talk-shows/361845-speier-congressional-reporting-system-for-sexual-harassment-set-up

Two female Democratic lawmakers have plans to change all that and have authored the ME TOO Congress Act. Representative Jackie Speier of California and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York want to require mandatory sexual harassment training and to reform the current way of reporting to make it easier for the victims and less protective of the accused.

Today, you’ll use Resistbot to demand more from our lawmakers. It’s time these perpetrators pay for their actions. #MeToo
