On Tuesday, the House Judiciary Committee marked up and passed H.R. 4970, a bill that would weaken the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).  Victim advocates have grave concerns about this legislation which contains changes to current law that will endanger many victims and excludes protections for specific victims.  We must now turn our efforts to the full House of Representatives in order to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) that improves safety for victims.  The vote could be as early as next week, so now is the time for Representatives to hear from you.

Several Members of Congress are claiming that Tuesday’s passage is a VICTORY for victims of domestic and sexual violence but it is NOT! H.R. 4970 rolls back protections and will harm victims.  We must tell our Representatives that we strongly oppose the Adams bill.  PLEASE CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVES TODAY!

Action 1: Call each U.S. Representative and tell them that HR 4970 harms victims.

  • Message: “The House Judiciary Committee’s passage of H.R. 4970 on Tuesday is NOT a victory – it HARMS victims of violence.  We oppose HR 4970 because it is DANGEROUS because it rolls back protections for victims and does not address the needs  of all victims. We support a bill like the bipartisan Senate bill that protects Native victims, immigrant victims, LGBT victims and other marginalized communities.  The House must must support ALL victims” Use the Capital switchboard number (202) 224-3121 to be connected.

Action 2: Send a letter to each U.S. Representative.
