As a survivor of sexual assault in the navy, Bonnie McCammond realized that the only way to address the ongoing issues with sexual assault in the military was to stand up and let people see the reality of what a survivor looks like. She is a long-time Slut Walker and an activist working to break down barriers for survivors inside and outside the military by focusing on education and humanization.
