Domestic and sexual violence are widespread in America and we need to ensure that we as a country continue to provide the services and support that so many victims/survivors need. Sen. Grassley has introduced a different bill, that further cuts funding and eliminates the Justice Department office devoted to administering the law and coordinating the nation’s response to domestic violence and sexual assaults, among other things. Thus, we urge Senate Republicans to support the bill introduced by Senators Leahy and Crapo.

      Domestic and sexual violence have become so entwined in the fabric of our society that we tune it out. We don't want to think about anything so unpleasant. WAKE UP! Cutting these funds sends the message that you don't care about women, children, or your vulnerable grandmother in the nursing home. How's that going to play with your constituents in November?

      I'm a survivor of an abusive relationship with a man who hit, threatened and sexually assaulted me. VAWA gives legal rights to those going through similar experiences, by not re-authorizing it, you're sentencing thousands of people to live in fear.
