You did it!! We now have 61 Sponsors in the Senate!

Thanks to Senator Heller (R-NV) and Senator Ayotte (R-NH) who signed on to sponsor VAWA this week, we now have 61 sponsors!  Thank you for all your hard work! 

Now we need to secure our sponsors’ commitment to S. 1925, the real VAWA, and to get as many new Senate supporters as possible.  VAWA is coming to the Senate Floor and we need to have as big an outpouring of support as we can!  This week, we want you to help us by signing petitions, engaging your friends and family and getting the word out that every Senator needs to hear from you and your loved ones about why VAWA must be passed immediately

Things are moving quickly – so “like” our Facebook page to get up to the minute information and make sure to visit the website often.


Action 1:  Ask your FRIENDS and FAMILY to call both of their senators’ D.C. offices today  and ask them vote YES on S. 1925 the real VAWA:

I urge Senator _____ to support the Violence Against Women Act and vote YES on S. 1925 AS IS. Don’t use VAWA as a political tool – pass it now so that all survivors of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking can get the support they need!


Action 2:  Ask all the men you know to sign a petition supporting VAWA

VAWA is everyone’s issue.  Help us engage more men by asking the men you know and love to sign the 10,000 Men for VAWA petition.
