Simultaneously, many programs are facing a decrease in donations due to widespread economic fears. As Congress negotiates a phase four COVID-19 supplemental appropriations package, the National Task Force to End Sexual and Domestic Violence (NTF) is leading an organizational sign-on letter to encourage Congress to provide vital resources to domestic violence and sexual assault programs and to the survivors they serve.

To sign onto this letter, please click HERE by COB on Friday, April 17. This letter is for national/state/local organizations only; individual sign-ons will not be accepted.

If you have any questions, please contact Rachel Graber (firstname.lastname@example.org), Monica McLaughlin (email@example.com), and Terri Poore (firstname.lastname@example.org).
