VAWA day of action
Congress is back from the election and there are less than 30 days left to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) before it expires and will need to be redrafted in January. You can take action now to tell Congress that it’s time to work together to pass VAWA. The Senate has already passed the reauthorization bill, and it’s time for the House of Representatives to pass the inclusive bill as well.
You can also take part in a ground-breaking campaign to leverage the full power of social media in fighting for the Reauthorization of VAWA! Join the #PassVAWA2012 Facebook Photo Campaign to tell Congress that it’s time to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act! It’s easy, just snap photos of you, your friends, your colleagues, & sympathetic strangers holding up signs saying why we need to Pass VAWA NOW! Submit your photos via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweetpic with #PassVAWA2012. For more details and sample campaign tweets check out 4vawa.org.
