Insist they reauthorize and strengthen

the Violence Against Women Act

What reauthorizing and strengthening the Violence Against Women Act will do:

  • Invests more in prevention by supporting programs to help children exposed to violence, works with teens and youth to build healthy relationships and engages men and boys to prevent domestic and sexual violence 

  • Improves the VAWA Health program to train more health care providers and make it easier to help children and elders affected by domestic and sexual violence 

  • Builds on the #MeToo movement and makes it easier for victims to be economically independent, be treated fairly by their employer and to access safe housing

  • Expands protections for Native American victims who are harmed by non-Native perpetrators to cover sexual assault, child abuse, sex trafficking, and assaults on tribal law enforcement officers on tribal lands

  • Strengthens provisions to keep guns away from convicted domestic abusers and those with protective orders against them, including dating partners who are not married to their victims
