Yes We Can ... Fix VAWA Now!
On January 20, 2009, Barack Obama and Joe Biden will be the president and vice-president. What does that mean for our Fix VAWA Now! effort?
While Joe Biden is the architect of the Violence Against Women Act, VAWA Reform is not a Republican or Democrat issue. VAWA is at best ineffective, and at worst, itís harmful to victims of violence and it breaks up families. Can any politician, Democrat or Republican, turn a cold shoulder to these hard truths?
As soon as possible, please work toward establishing channels of communication with the winners of your local, state, and national elections – even if you voted for their opponent! Find areas of common ground and invite them to be a true champion for victims of violence.
With your help, we can fix VAWA. Let's get to work.
