On March 7th, President Obama signed the Violence Against Women Act into law once again! It was a long road this past year, as it was allowed to lapse for the first time in it's 18 year history. But now the important work it does is once again in motion, and it’s even stronger than before. Many thanks to the thousands of you who contacted your Members of Congress to urge their support!
