The Time to Act is NOW for Senate vote on VAWA!

Congratulations on your fantastic advocacy efforts! Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has agreed to bring VAWA, S. 1925, to the Senate Floor very, very soon—possibly next week! And Senator Olympia Snowe (R-ME) became a co-sponsor of VAWA yesterday bringing our total co-sponsors to 59! We now need everyone who cares about VAWA to call their senators and urge them to vote YES on VAWA!

ACTION: Call both of your senators’ D.C. offices today and ask them vote YES on VAWA:

I urge Senator _____ to support the Violence Against Women Act and vote YES on S. 1925 AS IS. A vote for VAWA is a vote for women and for all victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking.
