It’s Time For ACTION!! VAWA needs YOUR support!
Join YWOCLC in helping to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) before the end of 2012.
It’s easy, just snap photos of you, your friends & your classmates holding up signs saying why we need to Pass VAWA NOW!
Submit your photos via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or upload on the #PassVAWA2012 Facebook Photo Campaign Page.
Also take the next action step and call your Senator and ask him/her to support VAWA.
Here is a link to find your Senators contact information: http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm
We still have some work to do in the House!!! Call your Representative and express the importance of including the protections for students, indigenous, immigrant women and LGBT people within the Violence Against Women Act.

“VAWA must be on the list of work that gets done by the end of December! Come January, the current bill expires and we will need to start again to draft a brand new bill, losing precious time and lives in the process.”
We should all agree that where a person lives, their immigration status, or who they love should not determine whether or not perpetrators of violence are brought to justice.

Thank you for your support!
