Reauthorize VAWA Now
The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) is the heart of our nation’s response to domestic violence and sexual assault, and must be reauthorized promptly. In its 25-year history, VAWA has transformed how we think about domestic and sexual violence and how our systems respond to survivors.
Every five years, Congress has the opportunity to improve VAWA to expand survivors’ access to safety and justice. A bipartisan bill to renew and improve VAWA has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives by Hon. Karen Bass (CA-37) and Hon. Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-1). Urge your Representatives to co-sponsor this lifesaving legislation today.
