Ending violence against women is not a partisan issue. VAWA has 1 purpose: protecting women & vulnerable populations from targeted abuse and violence. For nearly 20 years, Congress has consistently passed this lifesaving legislation with strong bipartisan support — and it has worked, reducing the rate of intimate partner violence by 64%. But last year, Congress failed to reauthorize the law for the 1st time ever. Send a message to your representative to put women's safety above politics.
