This is the 25th anniversary of the passage of one of the most groundbreaking pieces of federal legislation:  the Violence Against Women Act.  Championed by then-Senators Joe Biden and Orrin Hatch and signed into law by President Clinton, the Violence Against Women Act addressed the crimes of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking in a comprehensive and multifaceted approach never before seen.  Since its passage, VAWA has been reauthorized by Congress three times, improving services for survivors and promoting coordinated community responses to these crimes.  This year, it is up again having already passed the House of Representatives but awaiting action by the Senate.  

Come hear from some of the foremost experts in the field talk about their first-hand experiences and learn about:

  • the new federal crimes created to fill the gaps left by state laws and protection orders that couldn't follow abusers across state lines 
  • the grant programs created to support domestic violence shelters and other nonprofit providers of critical services for victims 
  • how VAWA encouraged collaboration and coordination among state law enforcement, prosecutors, courts, nonprofits and technical assistance providers 
  • the attention paid to the unique needs of various communities like rural survivors, immigrant survivors, and Native women

We hope you'll join us for an evening of drinks, hors d'oeuvres, and thoughtful conversation.

This event is free & open to the public, but registration is required.
