Next year, the Violence Against Women Act will expire. The law is responsible for over $600 million annually going to nearly 25 different programs to create and support comprehensive, cost-effective responses to prevent and respond to violence against women.

Each time that Congress has reauthorized VAWA, it has added important services and addressed emerging issues. Next year, we need Congress to reauthorize VAWA and continue to target resources to end violence against women.

Dial in to hear national advocates give an overview of the reauthorization effort, new proposed issues, and how you can influence and change VAWA programs and grant requirements. This audio conference is supported with funding to the Family Violence Prevention Fund from The California Endowment.
