Tell Congress they must pass VAWA before they go on their July 4th vacation as part of the National Day of Action for VAWA!  Congress needs to send a strong, bipartisan VAWA, that safely and effectively meets the needs of all victims, to the President.  We need Congressional leaders to hear our strong and united message once and for all: your work on VAWA is not over.  We have too much at stake and doing nothing is not an option.  Let’s send a national unified message to Congress to pass a strong, bipartisan VAWA that safely and effectively meets the needs of all victims – NOW!
