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.

After years of budget cuts, domestic and sexual violence programs have been forced to reduce services and victims are feeling the impact. The Congressionally-mandated sequester cuts are now taking effect, further decimating the resources that victims need to escape and heal from violence and abuse. Please join us in calling on Congress to end the sequester and ensure that lifesaving services will continue to be available to victims of domestic and sexual violence.
