We need a push to get VAWA through the U.S. Senate!

Please call Senator Johnson and ask him to co-sponsor this important and historic re-authorization. 

As you might know, the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Reauthorization passed out the Senate Committee last week; however, eight senators voted against the current version of the bill. We need to make sure enough Senators support VAWA so that it can quickly come to a vote.  You can help by calling Senator Johnson (202-224-5323) and asking him to support and co-sponsor the re-authorization of the VAWA. 

Here are some talking points:

Talking points:

  • We know that Senator Johnson cares about ending domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking.
  • The Violence Against Women Act is critical to our ability to address these crimes in Wisconsin.
  • Economic analysis has shown VAWA saves billions of dollars and countless lives.
  • Please support and co-sponsor of VAWA (s. 1925).

Thanks again for your tremendous advocacy and efforts!
