Protect Our Defenders is the only national human rights organization dedicated to combating the epidemic of sexual assault and sexual harassment in the US military, and to ensuring justice for survivors. Pro-bono lawyers and staff provide free, direct legal assistance to survivors (locally and nationally) as they face retaliatory discharges, errant medical diagnoses, privacy violations, and other unjust consequences of reporting assault. Meanwhile, POD fights the culture of harassment in the military through military training and prevention programs and by leveraging the power of survivor stories in the media and in congressional meetings and testimonies. Legal challenges in military court and extensive policy advocacy let POD expand legal protections for survivors and enforce their rights. Our service members deserve a justice system worthy of the American principles they dedicate their lives to protect.
