Tell the National District Attorneys Association to Remove their Biased Program Immediately!
Last week we reported that Attorney General Eric Holder said, “I applaud Congress for passing a bipartisan [VAWA] reauthorization that protects everyone – women and men, gay and straight, children and adults of all races, ethnicities, countries of origin, and tribal affiliations.” While that is a great start, we have a long way to go before all victims are treated equally.
We also have a long way to go before persons accused of abuse are treated equally. Research shows, “males were consistently treated more severely at every stage of the prosecution process.”
It’s easy to see why this is happening. Take a look at the National District Attorneys Association (NDAA) website, where you’ll find their program, the National Center for the Prosecution of Violence Against Women (NCPVAW).
Yes, you read that right. Blatant gender discrimination!
The featured quote on their page says, “Some things are so sad, there is just no response…except to fight.” We agree. Please join us and file a complaint with Jason Baker, director of government affairs:
This nonsense has to end! NOW!
