Today, NNEDV mourns the passing of Senator Frank Lautenberg, a statesman and champion for victims of domestic violence. Among many accomplishments, Senator Lautenberg authored legislation that keeps guns out of the hands of convicted batterers. "We have lost a true champion today," said Kim Gandy, President and CEO of NNEDV. "Because of Senator Lautenberg's work, victims of domestic violence are safer. He lived with purpose and will be missed terribly."
