Dear Friends,

Tomorrow, Thursday the Senate Judiciary Committee will be meeting to discuss Sen. Leahy’s version of the Violence Against Women Act reauthorization. Leahy’s VAWA bill contains many, many controversial provisions, and does nothing to assure real victims, and ALL victims – are helped.

At the meeting Sen. Charles Grassley will be proposing an amendment to bring the domestic violence industry to heel. The DV industry is certain to oppose these accountability measures. So please contact these members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and tell them that abuse victims are demanding that VAWA be made accountable to meet their needs.

Tell them to support Sen. Grassley’s efforts to bring accountability to the Violence Against Women Act.

Time is of the essence…please make your calls now!
