Some House Dems are planning to invite sexual assault survivors as their guests to Pres. Trump’s first State of the Union address, according to a new report. An aide to Rep. Lois Frankel (D-Fla.) told NBC News that some Democrats are planning the invitations to bring awareness to the issue. The report comes on the heels of Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) saying Tues. that she and other female House members are inviting lawmakers to weak black to Trump’s State of the Union in solidarity with the anti-sexual harassment “Me Too” and “Time’s Up” movements. 'This is a culture change that is sweeping the country and Congress is embracing it,' Speier told The Hill in a statement. Speier said the Democratic Women’s Working Group, which includes all of the female House members, was encouraging lawmakers from both sides of the aisle to wear black to the event, and that support is very high.
