Jamie Lee Jones was brutally gang raped when she worked for Halliburton/KBR
in Iraq. When she tried to sue she learned her contract required her to use
arbitration – a secret proceeding that denies civil rights.

Tuesday the Senate will vote on an amendment (SA 2588) that will prohibit
defense contractors from requiring arbitration in cases of rape or sexual
harassment.

ACT NOW to send your Senators a free, pre-written message urging them to
pass this important piece of legislation
