April is Sexual Violence Awareness Month and Congress wants to defund programs that protect women! (1 of 2)

No Budget Cuts to VAWA

Say NO to defunding any Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) programs. VAWA has made significant progress helping victims of domestic & date violence, sexual assault, elder abuse and stalking achieve justice and safety, with federally federally funded direct services such as shelter, rape crisis services, legal assistance, and counseling.

[And when you’re done calling, do a happy dance to celebrate the end of Bill O’Reilly’s run at Fox News.]


Script: I’m calling to ask (_____) to stand against any attempt to defund the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). It was passed with bipartisan support and has been incredibly effective in saving lives and money.

Call all three Members of Congress
