America’s Heroes Group Podcast, episode 280, addresses the topic of sexual assault and harassment in the military with Stephanie Kalota, a US Army Reserve Sergeant First Class Veteran and Founder of Veteran Legislative Voice. Together, America’s Heroes Group Roundtable and Kalota discuss sexual assault and harassment in the military, along with the resources in place to help those who’ve suffered from either in our newest episode.
Kalota shares about how many don’t fully understand how the prevention of sexual assault and harassment in the military works.
“There is a lot of lack of understanding of how sexual assault prevention and sexual harassment prevention really work and how to get it working,” Kalota said. “It’s a cultural thing and it’s going to take a while for it to actually start to get moving.”
The Veteran Legislative Voice (VLV) helps veterans, their spouses, and patriotic Americans exercise their 1st amendment rights in contacting their government and voicing their opinions about issues affecting military service members. VLV provides resources to those who are determined to make a difference for themselves and their fellow citizens.
America Heroes Group’s mission is to honor and respect the relentless commitment, ultimate sacrifice, and unwavering dedication of our retired Veterans and Active Service members thereby empowering and transforming their lives as they age in place and reacclimate back into society through identifying and positioning local and national communities as military friendly.
