Raped In The Military: A National Security Issue.
While serving their country, approximately 26,000 men and women yearly are raped and sodomizedcontinuously and these incidents are disturbingly covered up. Victims of Military Sexual Trauma (MST) are instructed to remain quiet and left to suffer, consequently causing them to become suicidal. The victims’ stories are revealed in a film produced and directed by Michael Miller and Gerri Lynn Weinstein- Matthews entitled “Justice Denied” which exposes the shocking stories of rape and humiliation. In the film, some of the victims speak of the notorious cannibal and rapists Jeffery Dahmer (who served in the U.S. Army from 1970- 1981) as being the perpetrator of their rape.
Join in the conversation (6p CST/7p EST/4p PST) with survivor, Michael Mathews who wil give us an update of the film "Justice Denied"at The Lotus Place and hear the stories of human and civil rights violations being covered up in the military.
Trailer for the film can be viewed here; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sRoZnqYzJA
Justice Denied is his story and the story of all of our active Military and our Veterans who do. The Military, the VA and the public are finally starting to wake up and become aware of what this blight on our Armed Forces is doing not only to the survivors, but to their families, their communities and our readiness to defend our Country. They’re realizing that the problem must be solved. Unfortunately efforts so far amount to not much more than band-aid treatment. We need serious change in the Culture of the Military and civilian oversight.
The Department of Defense says that some 19,000 cases of sexual assault per year are perpetrated and less than a 20% reported. The DoD says half of those are women and half are men. The incidence of sexual assault among the female population is higher but the numbers are roughly even. That's because there are more men than women in the military.
But wait, "Men in the Military don't get raped." Yes they do, and it's time to hear from them. Women have been courageously speaking up and doing so loudly. They are getting venues and platforms and audiences to tell their stories. Now it's time for the men to join their voices to the effort.
Justice Denied will tell what happens when an incident occurs and when it is (or not) reported and will set up a solution to make it safer for victims to come forward and report these crimes. We'll look at the Culture of the Military to see why it's not safe to report occurrences now. Our primary goal with this movie is to let male survivors know it’s ok to come forward and get treatment and let them know what kind of therapies (traditional and non-traditional) are available to them. It will hopefully also be a vehicle to lend the men's voices and experiences to the effort to get bill HR3435 out of committee, passed by both houses, and signed by the President.

There is nothing like being emotionally moved by a piece of art. Whether it be a painting, sculpture, or some other form of creativity; the overall impression can be lasting and coerce us to rethink how we view ourselves and the world around us.
Manifest Justice is a large-scale pop-up art exhibition, cultural convening, and community organizing event taking place in the Baldwin Hills area of South Los Angeles. Unlike other civil rights exhibits that highlight events from the 60's, Manifest Justice is hauntingly current. Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, and Oscar Grant are but a few of the many victims who have been immortalized through the works of over 150 artists.
Tonight I will be joined by Nijeul Xavier Porter, a young man who is instrumental to the success of the event; and Gabriel Garcia Roman, an artist who has works on display at the event. Both will share why the event is important -especially in today's social climate-and what it means to be a part of the experience.
The timing is right to have a dialogue about the justice system and the minority community. Join me and 2 guests as we come together to have a provocative conversation on the state of justice as it pertains to the minority community.

Black People in the United States of America are protesting the injustice they feel they have been suffering. Many White People don't understand why Black People aren't outraged at the recent killing of two Police Officers.
Where is the disconnect? And why are some turning to violence? What are the real underlying problems and what are the solutions? People are dying, neighborhoods are being destroyed and fingers are being pointed. But who is to blame? Those who express anger through violence or those who many Black People say pushed them to violence? Who needs to take responsibility for what?
On this show, we would really like Black People and White People with courage to call in and let's talk things out...
