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.

If the ACA is repealed, insurance companies will be able to charge victims of domestic violence more simply because they have experienced abuse. The ACA also provides autonomy to victims of domestic violence, enabling them to have insurance options beyond their abusive spouse’s insurance plan. Additionally, the ACA has helped promote screening of domestic violence by health professionals, helping survivors access early help and support.

Each year the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) advocates for continued investment in essential programming that serves survivors of domestic and sexual violence. While Congress has passed a short-term continuing resolution, it must finalize Appropriations bills for Fiscal Year 17. Last year’s increases in the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA), and sustained funding released from the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) are only just beginning to address a portion of the gap in direct services for survivors. The investment in these programs must be increased to fulfill the promise of VAWA, FVPSA, and VOCA to meet the demand for services.

Ask your Member of Congress to show her or his support for this crucial funding by urging investment in federal programs that address domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking by clicking here
