Help Keep Shelters Open and Expand Services to Survivors of Domestic Abuse
The Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA), a vital source of funding for programs that aid survivors of domestic abuse, expired in 2008 and desperately needs to be reauthorized this year. The Senate HELP committee, led by Senator Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) is currently drafting its version but there is a House bill (H.R. 4116), sponsored by Gwen Moore, (D-Wis.), that needs your support. There are currently 103 sponsors, and we need many more to get the attention of the House leadership.
Contact your representative today, and insist that they sponsor this vital bill that will reauthorize and improve the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (H.R. 4116). You can also thank your representative if they are already co-sponsors and ask them to encourage their colleagues to join them in this effort.
