SAVE THE DATE!
WHAT: VAWA Senate Day of Action
WHEN: All day on Wednesday, October 20, 2021 with a 2:00 pm EDT Twitter storm
WHY: The House of Representatives passed H.R.1620 more than six months ago, but the Senate has yet to introduce a bipartisan bill to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) that builds on H.R.1620 and includes all survivors.
Please use the hashtags #VAWA4All and #VAWA21 for the 2pm EDT Twitterstorm and in all social media activity.
ADDITIONAL ACTIONS: Spread the word about the day of action on October 20 using the unbranded alert template in this toolkit. Then, use the templates in the toolkit to write and submit letters to the editor and op-eds in advance of (or on or after) the day of action - it’s very easy! The toolkit will be updated periodically with graphics and other materials for the day of action.
