Quaker Lobby Commends Congress for Reauthorizing Violence Against Women Act

Washington, DC – The Friends Committee on National Legislation commended lawmakers for including the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) in the omnibus spending package passed yesterday. This long overdue reauthorization will be especially impactful for Native communities, where domestic and sexual violence occurs at unparalleled rates, and where cases involving murder or sexual assault frequently go unprosecuted.
