Unless otherwise acted upon, today is the expiration date of the Violence Against Women Act.

Many of the Republicans who voted against VAWA in 2013, also voted FOR Kavanaugh's confirmation (including members of the Senate Judiciary Committee who oversaw Blasey Ford's testimony)
Rep. Bob Goodlatte, who is retiring at the end of the year, is still blocking Savanna's Act, passed the Senate unanimously.

This bill is intended to help address the disproportionate amount of abuse faced by Indigenous women.

On Monday, the United States was the only nation in the UN to vote against language in a resolution that aims to stop violence against women and girls, because it referenced “sexual and reproductive health.”
Yesterday, TN Gov Bill Haslam granted clemency to 11 people - but failed to include #CyntoiaBrown who survived sex-trafficking and years of abuse.
I know it's the end of the year and we're all tired and burnt out, but violence against women is an epidemic that must be dealt with.

When elected officials fail to codified protections against such violence into law, they do a disservice to the very concept of justice.
