Hello Stop Family Violence Activists!
First of all - GREAT JOB to those of you who responded to yesterday's alert urging your Representatives to sign on to a "Dear Colleague" letter supporting full funding for VAWA. By mid-afternoon today 30 additional reps had signed on as a result of your messages!
NOW there's something URGENT and EXCITING happening in the SENATE.
Senator Joseph Biden (D-DE), the author of the Violence Against Women Act, has put forward an amendment that will add $100 million for VAWA to the Senate's budget proposal.
The Budget Committee will be voting on the Biden Amendment on THURSDAY MARCH 13!!
CLICK HERE to learn more and to tell your Senators to Vote YES on the Biden Amendment.
LET'S PULL OUT ALL THE STOPS ON THIS ONE!!!
Our strength is in our numbers!! Please pass this message on to everyone you can!
Together, we can... stopfamilyviolence.org
