The Dangers of Cutting Funding for the Violence Against Women Act

February 13, 2017

Multiple sources, including the conservative website The Hill, have reported that the new administration in Washington is considering cutting federal funds that support VAWA (Violence Against Women Act) grants.  The grants fund domestic violence related programs across the US.

Sojourners recently ran a piece featuring CFT Executive Council member and domestic violence expert Dr. Christy Sim, outlining why these cuts would be a big mistake.

Read “If We Cut VAWA, Domestic Violence Responders Can’t Do Their Jobs” by Rev. Amy Gopp and Rev. Dr. Sally MacNichol.  Please do what you can to let your representatives in Washington know where you stand on this issue.
