Senate Democrats

Conference Call On The Violence Against Women Act

On Tuesday, April 24 at 5:00 p.m. ET, please join Senator Mark Begich (D-Alaska), Chairman of the Senate Democratic Steering and Outreach Committee, and Senator Any Klobuchar (D-Minn.) for a Tele-Town Hall to discuss the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2011 (S.1925).

Since its passage in 1994, the Violence Against Women Act has a proven track record of protecting women from domestic violence, reducing the annual incidence of domestic violence by more than 50 percent. This law passed the Senate unanimously in 2000 and 2005, and 47 state attorneys general support its reauthorization now. It would be unacceptable to step away from our national commitment to stop violence and abuse. Saving the lives of women is and should be above politics.

This call is not for press purposes.
