I’m calling today to request that (Rep./Sen.) take the opportunity during this session to make re-authorization of the Violence Against Women Act a priority. This measure, which has received strong bi-partisan support in the years since it was first enacted in 1994- has languished for far too long in a wasteland of partisan bickering.
Please make the safety and welfare of all women in this country a priority and vote to reauthorize the version of VAWA (S.47) in the Senate and that provides comprehensive legal protection to all women.
The safety of its citizenry should never be a partisan issue by their elected officials. Please show your legislative leadership by supporting the re-authorization of the Violence Against Women Act. It is right, it is just and it is time.
