Action Alerts



Domestic violence is a crime of epidemic proportions and a public health crisis – affecting one in every four women during her life time and 15.5 million children every year.

FVPSA is the heart of our nation’s response to domestic violence – funding lifesaving services for victims and their children at over 1,600 domestic violence shelters and programs across the country.  However, FVPSA expired in 2008 and must be reauthorized so federal funds can continue to support crucial work.  Please help ensure victims and their children have a place to rebuild their shattered lives.

  • Find out if your Member of Congress is already a cosponsor of the FVPSA reauthorization bill.
  • If your Member of Congress is not a cosponsor, send a letter urging them to support the FVPSA reauthorization.
