Urge Congress to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act


The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) is the United States' most comprehensive resource for survivors of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking. VAWA is up for reauthorization every five years - including this year. Each reauthorization provides a new opportunity to enhance these safeguards and ensure survivors of gender-based violence have to access to the resources and protections they need.
