The District of Columbia Must Act Now to Protect Victims of Crime and their Children.

On December 7, 2010, the DC Council will vote on a Fiscal Year 2011 Budget Gap-Closing Budget and begin to plan for an even greater funding gap in 2012.  

The lives of thousands of victims and survivors of crimes including domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse and neglect, human trafficking, and homicide hang in the balance.  Without affirmative action and dedicated local funding, by 2012, the District's fragile safety net for victims of crime and their families will completely collapse. 

Please sign this petition to tell District leaders that you care about the safety net for victims, survivors, and their families.
