Dear Friends,

The Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to vote on the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) this coming Thursday at 10am next Thursday, Feb. 2. As you know, we have found many flaws in this bill, which is why we created the Partner Violence Reduction Act (PVRA).

The Partner Violence Reduction Act:

Gives priority to real victims.
Reduces false allegations.
Removes provisions that violate the Constitution.
Protects families.
Provides legal assistance for alleged victim and alleged offender.
Requires third-party accreditation.
Curbs immigration fraud.
Makes the law gender-inclusive.

We’d like you to call members on the committee. Tell them to reject VAWA and to support the Partner Violence Reduction Act. More info:
