If you used AAUW’s Action Network to speak up on behalf of passing the Senate version of the bill to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), you will have received an email of thanks from AAUW’s Public Policy Director, Lisa Maatz, announcing that the version of the bill that AAUW supported did, finally, pass the House of Representatives!
It has been a tortuous path to getting this important legislation passed. Passing the VAWA reauthorization has been a policy priority for AAUW, so this is a time to celebrate. To all of you who made your voices heard, THANK YOU! And to anyone not yet signed up for AAUW’s Two-Minute Activist, we urge you to do so. Working together, we can make a difference.
