VAWA Committee Vote Tomorrow; Call Members and Let Them Know Your Thoughts

January 25th, 2012 by Robert Franklin, Esq.
The following is a message from Stop Abusive and Violent Environments (S.A.V.E.).  Allegations of domestic violence are one of the chief ways in which children are separated from their fathers.

The Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to vote on the re-authorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) this coming Thursday at 10am. As you know, we have found many flaws in this bill, which is why we created the Partner Violence Reduction Act (PVRA).

The Partner Violence Reduction Act:

1. Gives priority to real victims.
2. Reduces false allegations.
3. Removes provisions that violate the Constitution.
4. Protects families.
5. Provides legal assistance for alleged victim and alleged offender.
6. Requires third-party accreditation.
7. Curbs immigration fraud.
8. Makes the law gender-inclusive.

Today we’d like you to call members on the committee. Tell them to reject VAWA and to support the Partner Violence Reduction Act. More info:
