This congress is nibbling away at one right after another. As a 63 year old
blind woman, I have witnessed the struggles of women with disabilities and
members of my own family to deal with domestic violence. Please stand up for
True story: Congress may actually fail to renew the Violence Against Women
Act because right-wing politicians are concerned that it protects too many
people. The legislation, which has helped reduce domestic violence
dramatically over the years, is being expanded to better protect LGBT,
undocumented and Native American victims. And it should: No one should be
denied protection from domestic violence--which results in the death of 3
women every single day!
Congress is getting away with this because hardly anyone is talking about it
and most of their constituents don't know this is happening. But the media
is starting to pick up on this story and if we speak out loudly we can make
it crystal clear that we are not going to stand for politicians who play
politics with women's lives. I just signed a petition demanding that
Congress pass the Violence Against Women Act right away. Can you join me?
