We are thrilled to announce that actress Jennifer Beals (Lauren, Flashdance, The L-Word) will be a special guest speaker, and Senator Claire McCaskill will deliver the Summit Keynote address.

Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Senator Amy Klobuchar, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez will receive the 2013 Lauterbach Award for Truth and Justice, and Navy veteran Ruth Moore will receive the 2013 Voice for Change Award. Our 2013 Service Providers of the Year are Center for Veterans Advancement, Public Counsel Law Center, and Kathleen Gilberd of the Military Law Task Force.

A host of exciting workshops and panels will take place throughout the day. We will hear from survivors, and policy and legal experts about the latest reforms in military sexual violence policy and what's in store for the future.
