House Passes Inclusive VAWA

The House of Representatives approved the Senate-passed Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) reauthorization that protects all victims and includes critical campus safety protections. This has been a long, hard battle, and I cannot thank you enough for contacting your elected officials and standing up with AAUW the whole way through.

Today is a great day to be part of an organization whose volunteer Lobby Corps and members across the country have knocked on Congress’ door for almost two years urging a VAWA that would protect all victims and improve campus safety. Thank you again for your advocacy and your support.

Yours in AAUW,
Lisa Maatz
AAUW Director of Public Policy and Government Relations
