Take Action to Secure Funding for Lifesaving DV/SA/anti violence Programs

From the Godmother of VAWA, Pat Reuss:

 

 

 

Sign a letter calling on Congress to increase funding for VAWA and related programs!  

April 3, 2014

Please forward widely!

Take action to secure funding for lifesaving programs

As we begin Sexual Assault Awareness Month, tell your Members of Congress that you care about funding for programs that serve victims of sexual assault and domestic violence. 

 

Please click here to add your organization's name to this letter which will be sent to Congress with the clear message: We can’t turn away victims in their time of need. 

 

Deadline for signing on is Friday, April.  Please remember to complete this form.

*Note: this letter is for ORGANIZATIONS, not individuals.  Watch this space for actions for individuals later in the Spring. 

 

Last year, we all worked to pass an inclusive Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) that would meet the needs of many more victims.  But without adequate funding, the law cannot meet the needs of all victims.  Let’s make sure that VAWA can live up to its potential and promise by urging Congress to fund VAWA and related programs. 

 

Watch this space for action alerts for individuals.
