Sign Your Name on the FVPSA Line!
We're calling on local, state, regional and national organizations, companies and government agencies to sign a letter supporting the reauthorization of the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act.
The National Task Force to End Sexual and Domestic Violence is swinging into action. We are building momentum for our campaign to reauthorize the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA). Please review this letter asking members of the U.S. House of Representatives to co-sponsor the FVPSA bill (H.R. 4116), and sign up to lend your support!
FVPSA, the only dedicated federal funding source for domestic violence shelters and services, expired in 2008 and must be swiftly reauthorized. We currently have over 50 co-sponsors, but we need an outpouring of support from the field as we talk to the Administration and walk the halls of Congress seeking support from additional members of Congress, especially Republicans!
Our first rounds of meetings have begun, so we hope as many of you as possible can add your organization's name as soon as possible. We'll need national, statewide and community organizations, companies and government agencies from all across the country to make our point. Individuals with prominence are also welcome to endorse.
Please send your endorsement, including your full organization name, address, phone number and status as a national, state or community group, to Angela Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org, by Friday, February 12, 2010.
FVPSA has arrived...let's get it reauthorized! And, together, we can make every home a safe home.
