About the Act
For too long, service members have not been able to properly seek justice to offset the damages caused by discriminatory practices within the military. We believe it is high time to do something about it, which is why we are asking congress to sponsor and support this bill that will provide the possibility for some relief to active duty victims of discrimination.
This bill, the “Petty Officer Jonathan Stremel Military Anti-Discrimination Act of 2020” is designed to allow suits to be brought against the United States for discrimination of members of the Armed Forces on the basis of race, color, religion, absence of religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, marital status, or political affiliation.
"This is a right that Americans currently have in the private sector and the Federal Government has no legitimate reason to continue to discriminate against the very service members that defend those rights."
