NNEDV issued a statement responding to a U.S. House vote in favor of a harmful version of the landmark Violence Against Women Act.  Sue Else, NNEDV's president said:

“The House took an enormous step backward in passing a Violence Against Women Act that weakens vital protections for victims and fails to address their urgent needs.  During a time of great need, we should be expanding cost-effective, proven protections rather than weakening them.

"We applaud those who listened to thousands of victim advocates and voted against this harmful bill, and we look forward to working with lawmakers to make right today’s wrong."
