Guillen protest

Julio Acosta of Dallas speaks through a megaphone in late July near the intersection of North Fort Hood Street and West Rancier Avenue during the weekly protest for Spc. Vanessa Guillen.

The family of Vanessa Guillen will continue with their peaceful protests in Killeen today, according to Find Vanessa Guillen Facebook page.

The protest will be from 4 to 7 p.m. today at 1104 W. Rancier Ave. 

The family and organizers are pushing to have the #IamVanessaGuillen bill passed by Congress. 

The bill would allow soldiers to be able to report cases of sexual harassment or sexual assault to a third party rather than his or her chain of command. 

There will also be a protest from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday at the intersection of Veterans Memorial Boulevard and Twin Creek Drive in Killeen for Pvt. Gregory Wedel-Morales.
