VAWA (S. 1925) has 61 sponsors – now is the time for Senate Majority Leader Reid to schedule a vote on VAWA and for all Senators to support S. 1925.
TAKE ACTION: Urge Senator Reid to schedule VAWA for a vote the week of April 16.
S. 1925 has enough sponsors to go to the Senate floor for a vote without a filibuster. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has the power to schedule VAWA for a vote. Ask him to schedule a vote as soon as possible.
Suggested message: “Senator Reid, VAWA has 61 co-sponsors and could get a vote for cloture now. At this time, those who oppose VAWA are developing a bill that would undercut VAWA. Please schedule a date in April that S.1925, the real VAWA, will be heard on the Senate floor.”
Senator Reid's phone number: 202-224-3542 (D.C. office).
Additional Action: Thank Senator Kohl and ask him to fight for the real VAWA.
Please contact Senator Kohl. Thank him for co-sponsoring VAWA and thereby helping to support lifesaving services for victims of domestic violence. Ask him to resist attempts to weaken the legislation.
Senator Kohl's phone number: (202) 224-5653 (D.C. office).
