Today we have an urgent request.
As we told you last week, S. 47, a Violence Against Women Act reauthorization bill has been introduced in the Senate. Unfortunately, S. 47 is very similar to last year’s VAWA and ignores well-documented problems.
You’d think that with all of the controversy surrounding VAWA, the Senate would afford time for discussion and the possible addition of amendments. But this may not be the case! Word is that it may skip the Judicial Committee and go straight to the floor for a vote!
We believe that these VAWA Reform Principals are vital and urgently needed to create a comprehensive and effective VAWA: http://www.saveservices.org/pvra/vawa-reform-principles.
Our urgent request: Please call your Senators RIGHT NOW. Tell them, “Say NO to S. 47 and YES to Real VAWA Reform!”
Find your senators here: http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm
Let’s show them what we’re made of. Use those phones!
