16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence: Congress Should Adopt IVAWA
December 2, 2010
Contact your Senate and House members to urge them to pass the International Violence Against Women Act (IVAWA) (S. 2982/H.R. 4594). The Senate Foreign Relations Committee is set to consider this bipartisan bill, but very few days remain in the lame duck session. Adoption in this Congress of IVAWA would be an important action coming during the current international campaign: 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence. This legislation will greatly enhance U.S. prevention of and response to gender-based violence in the international community.
Please send a message urging passage of IVAWA.
