RADAR Launches New Campaign - VAWA: Out of Control
Today RADAR launches a new campaign "Violence Against Women Act: OUT OF CONTROL." The campaign will highlight that despite spending billions of dollars over the last decade, VAWA-funded programs lack accountability and effectiveness, and are destroying families. Case in point are the advertisements that were run on the Dallas Area Rapid Transit last Fall that featured messages promoting harmful and false stereotypes.
During the next few months our campaign will highlight how the Violence Against Women Act has gone out of control. We will be asking you to help get out the word to your elected representatives and the media how the Violence Against Women Act is out of control, as well as how to reform VAWA.
Successfully reforming VAWA depends on your participation. Last year we have succeeded in stopping four out-of-control bills: I-VAWA, ABA earmarks, gun confiscation, and a House resolution.
