Joint Action Alert from the Partnership and California Coalition Against Sexual Assault

Action Alert
Tell Your Member of Congress to Vote NO on the American Health Care Act

Today, the House of Representatives plan to vote on a bill (the AHCA) that would repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Loss of the ACA would threaten the healthcare of millions of people across our country, but victims of domestic violence would face particular harm. Make sure your Congressional Representatives know that this is simply inexcusable.

Action Alert
Tell Congress: Rescind the Anti-Muslim and Anti-Refugee Executive Orders Now!

President Trump’s January Executive Orders relating to immigrants and refugees endanger the safety of victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, and human trafficking, their families, and communities at large, further isolate victims and create barriers to established legal protections for victims. 


Action Alert
Oppose Any Cuts to Violence Against Women Act Funding

Like many of you, we are deeply concerned by reporting in The Hill indicating that the new administration’s budget proposal may call for the elimination of the Office on Violence Against Women and Violence Against Women Act grants. We take seriously any efforts to reduce or eliminate funding for domestic violence services.
