Help Switch Domestic Violence Month To Sept.

Hello Fellow Patrons,

Battered Woman In Transition wants you to join us with signing our petition to get voters to switch domestic violence month to September instead of October where it is hidden behind breast cancer awareness. We want to achieve the goal of receiving just praise for both domestic violence and breast cancer awareness.

Because the president signed the bill below in September, this would be a great reason to support the change...

October 19, 2013 marks the 19th anniversary of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). As the original author and champion of VAWA, Vice President Biden brought national attention to what had too-long been a hidden problem. Then-Senator Biden held the first hearing on violence against women in the Senate Judiciary Committee in 1990 and introduced the first version of the Act that same year. After five years of hearings exposing the extent of rape, battering and stalking, the Act finally passed Congress and was signed into law by President Clinton on September 13, 1994.
