The following is from SAVE:
Tomorrow, Thursday the Senate Judiciary Committee will be meeting to discuss Sen. Leahy's version of the Violence Against Women Act reauthorization. Leahy's VAWA bill contains many, many controversial provisions, and does nothing to assure real victims, and ALL victims - are helped.
At the meeting Sen. Charles Grassley will be proposing an amendment to bring the domestic violence industry to heel. The DV industry is certain to oppose these accountability measures. So please contact these members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and tell them that abuse victims are demanding that VAWA be made accountable to meet their needs.
Tell them to support Sen. Grassley's efforts to bring accountability to the Violence Against Women Act.

Stop Abusive and Violent Environments
Let's get busy. Let's tell them to support Grassley's amendment. It's time to hold these agencies that get our money accountable and this is the best way to do it. If phoning is out of the question then send emails-they're effective and free so why not. This is something the DV industry hates but then again they hate men so what they hate must be good for us. Let's phone or send those emails right away. The freedoms you save may be your own so act today.
