The new administration is reportedly proposing to eliminate the Office on Violence Against Women and Violence Against Women Act grants. Such actions would be catastrophic for survivors, families, and entire communities.
Many of us feel scared and confused by the future. But we have always done the impossible, we have always been courageous. You have a choice to practice courage now -- to stand with survivors.
We are joining the
California Partnership to End Domestic Violence
and other allies in this URGENT call to action. Call your Member of Congress and Senators to express your serious concern about any efforts to eliminate funding for VAWA programs.
Find your Member of Congress and their contact information here.
It's up to us to reject this new administration's plans to harm advancements made by hard-working activists in the women's movement over 30 years ago. We must stand together and organize to protect each other.
To heal, we all need to feel safe. We all need to have access to life-saving support. But we can't do this alone. It's going to take all of us to organize and advocate to protect each other.
Tomorrow, I invite you join our Peace Over Violence Contingent at the Women's March - Los Angeles. Meet us at 8:30am on 4th and Hill
in Downtown LA. Look out for our Peace Over Violence flag to find us.
