Post-Election Statement from NNEDV
November 10, 2016
After a presidential election that surfaced many issues related to violence against women and women’s equality, we are strengthened in our resolve and commitment to create a social, political, and economic environment in which gender-based violence no longer exists. Together with our partners across movements, we continue to stand against sexism, racism, homophobia, and all systemic oppressions that affect survivors and victims.
We take deep inspiration from the advocates who have been working on this nonpartisan issue for over 40 years and who have secured hard-won progress. We will continue to reach out and work with the Administration and Congress to increase survivors’ safety and hold offenders accountable.
We stand with all survivors, and strive to prevent violence before it begins. We fight for you, we fight alongside you, and we will continue to fight to maintain and expand the progress, investment, and resources that help us reach toward our common goal of creating a world where violence no longer exists.
