YOU DID IT: Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) passes House
A big thanks to each one of you who called/posted on your Facebook/Twitter page and did more to pass the inclusive Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). The House just defeated the terrible House version of VAWA and passed the Senate version. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
What many of you may not know is that The National Organization for Women (NOW) was one of the strongest forces in getting VAWA passed in 1994, and worked hard to get the proper VAWA reauthorized. A special thanks to Pat Reuss of NOW, who is on the national task force which kept/keeps working on VAWA.
