Urge Congrss to Support I-VAWA

I would like to share yet another email I received from Futures Without Violence https://www.futureswithoutviolence.org/ On November 14, 2017 the U.S. Senate re-introduced the International Violence Against Women Act (I-VAWA), a groundbreaking piece of legislation aimed at preventing violence against women and girls across the globe. The announcement followed the passage of the Women, Peace and Security Act, which was signed into law on October 6, 2017.
There is a strong momentum in advancing women’s rights, increasing their security and improving the conditions under which they can meet their full potential. The stage is set for the U.S. to confirm its commitment to making ending violence against women a pillar on which its foreign policy agenda stands.
Ask your Members of Congress to co-sponsor and pass I-VAWA now!

This Tuesday November 21, 2017  meet State Senator Henri Martin and State Representative Bill Petit for coffee in Plainville, Connecticut. http://www.cthousegop.com/petit/2017/11/17/plainville-legislators-host-morning-coffee-hour-4/   Perhaps to discuss this very subject.

Please check out the link below for a letter to send as well.

Hugs Casey
