Today Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) introduced VAWA legislation that MCASA wholeheartedly supports! She has been working closely with the National Alliance to End Sexual Violence and the National Task Force to End Sexual and Domestic Violence to develop legislation to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) that goes the next step to address the needs of survivors and communities, and she has just introduced a very strong bill. Survivors deserve action on VAWA now!
Call our Representatives today with the following message to reauthorize VAWA before its September 30 deadline : "We need the Violence Against Women Act reauthorized now before it expires. Survivors can’t wait for lifesaving responses to sexual assault and communities can't wait for prevention programs. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee has introduced moderate legislation, H.R. 6545, reauthorizing VAWA that both sides can support. Please co-sponsor this legislation today."
