- Friday, October 24 – Call on Congress to increase funding for domestic violence services
Members of Congress need to hear from you that domestic violence services are important to your community! Federal funding and laws such as the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA), and the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) make a difference in the lives of victims and help us build stronger, safer communities. Contact your Senators and Representative today!
