VICTORY: Sen. Fischer votes for the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act
Victims of domestic violence have been without help since the last VAWA expired in 2011, all because of Congress’s political games. Since VAWA was first passed in 1994, domestic violence incidents have dropped by 60 percent, but the rates are still dangerously high. One in four women experiences domestic violence.
After 1,100 petition signatures and more grassroots activism, Sen. Fischer voted for VAWA’s reauthorization.
