 Please forward to everyone you know who cares about ending domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking! 


GREAT NEWS!

The Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act, S. 1925, has passed the Senate by a  68 to 31 vote!
And it couldn't have happened without you!


Check the vote count, and call your Senators that voted yes to tell them how proud you are that they supported the bill written by more than 2,000 professionals serving victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking and supported by more than 1,000 national, state and local programs.  Let them know you are glad that they voted to protect ALL victims of these crimes!
