Pass the Violence Against Women Act
The Democratic-controlled Senate is on the brink of reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act. However, the Republican-controlled House is stalling. There's no indication if Speaker John Boehner will even bring reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act up for a vote.
Sign the petition to Speaker John Boehner, telling him to bring the Violence Against Women Act up for a vote. We'll deliver the signatures to Rep. Gwen Moore (D-WI), who is leading the charge to reauthorize the law in the House, and can use your show of grassroots support to help persuade her colleagues.
Please hold a vote on the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act. Since this critical legislation was passed in 1994, incidents of domestic violence against women have dropped by 58 percent.
Republicans have a chance to ease off the war on women for one vote, on a bill that in 2005 was reauthorized by a Republican-controlled House with 415 votes. Just take it and move on.
