Tell Congressman Cantor about presumption of innocence when it comes to VAWA

A national survey showed most people favor reforming the Violence Against Women Act. SAVE agrees with the need for reform. We are especially concerned about VAWA's lack of presumption of innocence.

Let's do what we can to fix this. Since there are VAWA negotiations already going on, Eric Cantor needs to hear from you, ASAP! Call (202) 225-2815 and tell Congressman Cantor: "the new definition of sexual assault must be removed from the final version of VAWA!" or you can email him.

We may not have a lot of time left, so let's not waste a minute.

Let's Congressman Eric Cantor the definitions,which are originally from DOE's "dear colleague" letter,are unacceptable in VAWA and that presumption of innocence must be preserved.
