CALL TO ACTION: We are petitioning the White House, Congress and State Officials to increase the scope of VAWA to reduce incidents of intimate partner violence, decrease the cost of social and gender based violence, and change the culture around this type of violence. We specifically need a change in:
DV education/resources for all schools, law enforcement, and first responders
Increased funding for public housing, rural efforts, and relocation costs for survivors
Recognize victims of DV as a protected class in employment provisions
A federal standard regarding violations of no-contact orders
Ensure all DV and IPV acts are felony acts
Increased protections/security measures for victims who are at high-risk for COVID
Culturally specific programs to target minority groups and immigrants at risk
