Some Democratic House members are planning to invite victims of sexual assault to President Donald Trump's State of the Union address, NBC News reported Wednesday.

Rep. Lois Frankel, D-Fla., of the Democratic Women's Working Group in the lower chamber, said the invites would be a way to highlight the issue.

"Some members will be bringing survivors of sexual assault and advocates as their guests," she told NBC News.

Members of the women's working group are planning to wear black to the State of the Union on Jan. 30 to show their solidarity with victims of sexual assault, NBC News reported.

"This is a culture change that is sweeping the country, and Congress is embracing it," Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., told NBC News.
