“Dealing with the challenges of today and decades ago, sexual violence in the armed forces is a permissive problem. The I am Vanessa Guillen Foundation is here to fight against issues and help the community in need. We must emerge out of a pursuit to inspire and support the community, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words. Our main goal at this moment is to pass our legislation, the I am Vanessa Guillen Act and build projects-programs-campaigns to bring awareness to the people. We established in 2021 after the disappearance and murder of U.S Army Specialist Vanessa Guillen, we’re a foundation driven by progressive ideas, bold actions, and a strong foundation of support.
