Welcome to NNEDV's Action Center!
NNEDV asks advocates and allies to contact Congress at key times to influence legislation and funding for domestic violence programs. NNEDV will ask you to make phone calls, send an email or take action on social media sites. Taking a few minutes to contact your elected officials can mean a world of difference to a survivor of domestic violence.
Please sign up to receive NNEDV's action alerts and check this page for current action items. Even if there is not a current action item, you can contact your Senators and Representatives at any time to tell them how important the federal response to domestic violence is in your community.
Tell them about the services that victims need and how the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA) and the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) make a difference in the lives of victims.

One of the most significant threats to victims of domestic violence is a perpetrator’s access to firearms. Every day women are killed or severely injured because their abusers have access to firearms. In fact, firearms are the primary weapon of choice in domestic violence homicides. When abusers have access to firearms, a survivor’s life is in danger.
Many survivors of abuse are incredibly vulnerable to firearm-related homicide, and yet they are not covered by current law. Your member of Congress needs to hear that you care about this -- that these gaps allow abusers to terrorize and murder victims, their children, family members and other bystanders.
NASCAR recently reversed their decision to suspend driver Kurt Busch, who was indefinitely suspended after an Order of Protection from Abuse was issued against him.
NNEDV is deeply concerned regarding NASCAR's position on domestic violence. The reversal of Busch's suspension suggests that NASCAR has decided to minimize domestic violence, instead of continuing to take a stand against it.
NASCAR has the incredible ability to reach hundreds of thousands of men, women, and children across the country during every race. Join us in asking NASCAR to stand strong against domestic violence.
