Sign the petition: Tell the Senate to pass the Violence Against Women Act

The Violence Against Women Act is an important law, but it needs to be updated. Under Donald Trump, it was allowed to expire in 2018. In 2019 the House passed VAWA, but the Senate didn't act.

But now that we've defeated Donald Trump, kept the majority in the House, and won the majority in the Senate, we have an opportunity. In March of this year the House passed the bill again; now it's up to the Senate.

Sign the petition: urge the Senate to pass the Violence Against Women Act.

1 in 4 women has been the victim of severe, intimate partner violence at some point in their lifetime. And yet, we're still having a debate about whether there should be a robust national response.

The reality is that American women can't wait any longer.

Our grassroots movement has demanded action for years. Now that we won in 2020, it's time to make sure that everyone across the country knows the importance of updating the Violence Against Women Act.

Please sign the petition and urge the Senate to pass the Violence Against Women Act.
