Call Script

Vote YES on H.R. 6545: The Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2018.


The Violence Against Women Act was included in a defense and health spending bill passed last month. However, it was only granted a short-term reauthorization until Dec. 7. This new version contains language about letting law enforcement officials take weapons from domestic abusers who can’t legally own them, and significantly increases funding for rape crisis centers.
