It’s time to speak out!

Next Wednesday, January 27th, is an opportunities for you to get involved in the public policy work of the  Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance.

Legislative Advocacy Day!

Members from across the Commonwealth will come to Richmond to meet with their legislators and educate them on:

Funding for services that support children and youth who have been exposed to sexual or domestic violence (through an increase in the marriage license fee) 

All of the children that could be forced to testify against their parents if a particular bill passes

Why it is time to have a comprehensive review of Virginia’s protective order laws rather than passing many small fixes

A stalking bill that could help make it easier for offenders of stalking to be charged

One barrier to reporting for immigrant victims and witnesses of crime, and how they can help remove it

We really hope that you will get involved.  Please do and contact the Action Alliance staff to find out how you can support these issues. 

Contact the Action Alliance at: and click on “Legislative Advocacy Day January 2010 Register online” You will receive an agenda, directions and other information once you register.

We hope to see you next week!
