MCASA continues work with national partners to ensure Maryland’s concerns are heard
Nov 30th, 2011
The Violence Against Women Act is due for reauthorization. Senators Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Mike Crapo (R-ID), will introduce a bipartisan bill today, Wednesday, November 30th to reauthorize and improve VAWA. The National Task Force to End Sexual and Domestic Violence has worked closely with them on the bill to ensure that it will not only continue proven effective programs, but that it will make key changes to streamline VAWA and make sure that even more people have access to safety, stability and justice.
This is an important step forward for VAWA and MCASA hopes to get even more improvements as the bill moves forward. MCASA continues to work with our national partners to make sure Maryland's concerns are heard.
