Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act

Since its passage in 1994, the Violence Against Women Act has a proven track record of protecting women from domestic violence, reducing the annual incidence of domestic violence by more than 50 percent. This law passed the Senate unanimously in 2000 and 2005, and 47 state attorneys general support its reauthorization now. Please call your Colorado Senators now to urge them to vote for S1925. (Michael Bennet 202-224-5852 and Mark Udall 202-224-5941).

It would be unacceptable to step away from our national commitment to stop violence and abuse. Saving the lives of women is and should be above politics.
