Reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act

Violence Against Women Act

Support Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act

One in three women in the United States has been a victim of some form of physical violence by an intimate partner and one in five women in the United States has been raped in their lifetime. The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), landmark legislation first passed with bipartisan support in 1994, provides critical support for victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking. The Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2018 (H.R. 6545) supports the continuation of essential programs and services under the original bill while providing for critical improvements.

Contact your representative today to urge them to support reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act.
