Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)

Reprinted from CCASA:

The Violence Against Women Act is STILL NOT REAUTHORIZED!  Wednesday, November 14th has been designated as a National Day of Action.   Please take a few minutes on that day to call or email your Senators and Representatives.

• Use this number 888.269.5702 to connect to the Capitol switchboard.  Then ask to be connected to your U.S. Representative or Senator.  Or use these websites (www.house.gov www.senate.gov) to find their email address.

• Here's your brief message:  “I am your constituent.  Now that the elections are over, I urge you to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)!  It has been 679 days since VAWA expired, 183 days since Congress’s last action on VAWA.  Please, show women and victims that you care – pass VAWA now!"
