[CLOSED] The Senate Budget Proposal Will Harm Survivors

This week, the Senate plans to vote on its budget proposal. Under the proposal being considered by the Senate, survivors would be endangered in two ways. First, the deep cuts to non-defense discretionary (NDD) funding will lead to a reduction in funding for domestic violence and sexual assault programs. Secondly, the budget proposal calls for unsustainable cuts to safety net programs, such as Medicaid, Medicare, SNAP/food stamps, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, and Supplemental Security Income upon which survivors rely.

Lack of financial resources is already an enormous barrier to safety and security for victims of domestic violence. Reductions in any of these critical programs will be devastating for survivors’ safety and security. Tell the Senate to Reject this Budget Proposal!
