19 Days to Reathorize VAWA

There are only 19 days left to pass VAWA before the House recesses on December 16, 2012! We must pass a strong, bi-partisan Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) NOW that supports ALL victims and survivors of sexual and domestic violence.

The Senate version of VAWA will increase support for immigrant victims, ban discrimination against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender victims and give more authority to Native American tribes to address sexual and domestic violence.  The MA delegation has been fully supportive of this version and we need them to take their support beyond their original vote and take leadership in moving VAWA forward—by engaging the leadership and educating their colleagues about why VAWA is so important.

ACT NOW to let Congress know that VAWA is still a priority for victims and survivors in your communities and that they should pass it in before the session ends.

Call or email your U.S. Representative and Senators and:

1.       Thank them for their unwaivering support of VAWA

2.       Ask them to tell their leadership that Massachusetts victims and survivors need a strong, bipartisan VAWA that supports all victims and survivors to pass now.
