Action Alert: VAWA Re-authorization is Here! Call Senator Johnson.

Please call Senator Johnson and ask him to co-sponsor this important and historic re-authorization. 

The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) is due for reauthorization. Senators Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Mike Crapo (R-ID), are set to introduce a bipartisan bill to reauthorize and improve VAWA!  We need to get a good list of cosponsors to keep the re-authorization process on track.  You can help by calling Senator Johnson (202-224-5323) and asking him to support and co-sponsor the re-authorization of the VAWA. 

Here are some talking points:

 

Talking points:

  • We know that Senator Johnson cares about ending domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking.

  • Economic analysis has shown VAWA saves billions of dollars and countless lives.
  • We are asking for you to be a co-sponsor of the Leahy/Crapo bill.
