Reauthorization of VAWA

Reauthorization of the federal Violence Against Women Act is a priority of the NCWU member organization NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

A national coalition, the National Task Force to End Sexual and Domestic Violence Against Women, 4vawa.org,  has issued an alert to encourage more senators to sign up as co-sponsors of the bill.

In NC, Sen. Hagan is a co-sponsor, so this means encouraging Sen. Burr to join the list of co-sponsors.

Check www.4vawa.org for talking points and additional actions, especially provisions that are being considered in the House and affect Native American women.
