Panayiota also shared her story on surviving a brutal rape while serving at Coast Guard Station Burlington, VT as part of Protect our Defenders project. Protect our Defenders, Honorary Chaired by Congresswoman Jackie Speier, seek to fix the
military training, investigation and adjudication systems related to sexual violence, systems that often re-victimize survivors by blaming them while failing to prosecute perpetrators. As a result Congresswoman Jackie Speier introduced H.R, 3435;
Sexual Assault Training Oversight and Prevention Act (The STOP act). Watch Panayiota here.
Panayiota worked with the Department of Veterans’ Affairs to bring awareness to military sexual assault and the services available through the VA for sexual assault survivors. Watch her Make the Connection video that she made with the Department of Veterans’ Affairs here.
