January 24, 2013   National Coalition Against Domestic Violence   VAWA information link Please forward to everyone you know who cares about ending domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking!  Breaking News Alert: VAWA Reintroduced Yesterday- Take Action Today by Contacting Your Senators! Yesterday, Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Senator Michael Crapo (R-ID) introduced S. 47, a strong, bipartisan bill that would reauthorize the landmark Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)! This bill closely mirrors the bipartisan legislation introduced by Senators Leahy and Crapo last Congress and would improve VAWA programs and strengthen protections for all victims of violence (see description of legislation below). In order to continue our incredible momentum from last Congress, we need you to take action TODAY by contacting your Senators to co-sponsor S. 47. Our goal is to get 60 co-sponsors by January 31 st   so that VAWA can get to the Senat
