Statement of Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) on the 1-Year Anniversary of the Enactment of the Leahy-Crapo Violence Against Women Act (#VAWA) | "The new nondiscrimination provisions we fought so hard to protect are ensuring that ALL victims have access to lifesaving programs and cannot be turned away...While some called for us to cast the most vulnerable groups among us aside and pass a watered down bill, I am proud that we held firm in our beliefs."

Over the last 7 years, every local program had to deny an average of 6 requests for help from victims in just one day. In that same time period, funding for shelters and services has stagnated. | design by @Andria Waclawski | DV Counts Census infographic and briefing supported by the @Avon Foundation
