#IamVanessaGuillen – Film Screening and Panel

We are screening the Univision documentary that relates the rape and murder of Army Specialist Vanessa Guillen on Fort Hood to the resilience of survivors of military sexual assault and what steps they are taking to change it.  We also are hosting a panel following the film to talk about the widely-reported state of affairs in the Maine National Guard and what steps are being taken, as well as what resources are available for survivors in the state.
