Dear Friends,

It’s down to the wire. The senate is expected to vote on the Violence Against Women Act very soon.

Vice President Biden recalled recently that when VAWA was first passed, opponents warned that it would be misused in divorce. They were right.

girl at windowOne in six Americans know someone who has been falsely accused of domestic violence. The “silver bullet” in divorce, false allegations are sometimes used to obtain child custody. This despicable act removes fit and loving parents from the lives of their children.

Please take a moment, as soon as possible, and speak out for the millions of children who are missing a falsely accused parent. And do it for the parents who are grieving for their children, stolen with a lie.

Find your senators here: http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm. Take note of their party affiliation and phone number.

If your senator is a Republican, call, and ask them to support Sen. Grassley’s Substitute Amendment to VAWA.

If your senator is a Democrat, call, and ask them to demand changes to Sen. Leahy’s VAWA (S. 1925), to curb false allegations of domestic violence.

Thank you for taking a stand for affected families everywhere.
