If your Representative is NOT on the list of Co-sponsors, please urge him or her to sign on to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act, HR6545.
WHY IT MATTERS:
Since 1994, when funding for the Act was first authorized, the US League of Women Voters has supported violence prevention programs in all communities through the allocation of public monies in government programs to prevent violence.
Since VAWA was first authorized in 1994, violence against women has decreased by close to two -thirds.
