ACTION ALERT: Your Senators are home for August recess!

Make sure your Senators hear from you - the Senate must pass a bill substantially similar to H.R.1585!

On April 4th, the House of Representatives passed H.R.1585, the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2019 (VAWA), with strong bipartisan support. As the Senate is working on their VAWA reauthorization, we have to pressure the Senate to ensure the bill is as similar to H.R.1585 as possible. It must maintain important protections for vulnerable survivors while making critical enhancements to prevent and respond to domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking.

Your Senators will be home for FIVE WEEKS for the August Recess - and they need to hear from you!!! Go to town hall meetings and with your Senators and with others holding events in your state. Go to events where your Senators are appearing. Meet one-on-one with them and/or their staff.

This EASY TO USE toolkit provides information about what to say, how to set up meetings, and what 501(c)(3)s can and cannot do at candidate meetings.

Please feel free to email rgraber@ncadv.org, drosenbloom@jwi.org, or edahl@nnedv.org with questions and with the results of your meetings, town halls, or other events!
