In a letter to the House Appropriations Committee, Representatives Gwen Moore, Jan Schakowsky, Judy Chu, and John Katko, called for $1.135 billion in FY 2023 funding for VAWA programs.
“The Violence Against Women’s Act (VAWA) programs save lives. Not only does the VAWA program invest in community responses to domestic and sexual violence, these programs provide safe housing, legal services, combat violence on college campuses, and help address the unique needs of American Indian and Alaskan Native survivors. With the most recent VAWA reauthorization, it is our duty to invest in these critical programs and I am incredibly proud of bipartisan support that this letter continues to receive,” said Congresswoman Gwen Moore.
