Today’s Action: Demand permanent funding for the Violence Against Women Act

An average of 3 women per day are murdered by an intimate partner — 600 are raped or sexually assaulted — and women face 4.8 million incidents of domestic abuse per year.

But in a matter of months, funding for women’s shelters, crisis centers, and social service agencies could be cut off…because the Violence Against Women Act has expired.

Call or email your Representatives and demand they cosponsor and move forward the Violence Against Women Act for 2019 (H.R. 1585). If they have already cosponsored, thank them.

This landmark legislation was enacted in 1994, and in the last 25 years, has provided abused, battered, and stalked women with vital support networks: rape crisis centers, shelters, legal assistance, counseling, and more. Though violence against women remains far too common, in the years since VAWA’s inception, intimate partner violence has declined by an astounding 72% and sexual assault against women has dropped by nearly 60%.

Despite the remarkable success of VAWA, Republicans blocked the act from renewing in 2018, and now the VAWA has expired…which means Congress must act immediately to prevent another crisis of its own making.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Representatives and tell them to consponsor and push forward the Violence Against Women Act of 2019 (H.R. 1585). Thank them if they have already cosponsored.

Anything less than permanent funding and full support is dangerous to the lives of millions of women.
