REINTRODUCED: The Family Violence Prevention and Services Act has been re-introduced in the senate by Senator Robert Casey (D-PA) and Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK).
The Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (H.R. 2604) has been reintroduced by Representative Lucy McBath (D-GA-07), and representatives Gwen Moore (D-WI-04), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA-01) and Young Kim (R-CA-40).
Since its original passage in 1984, FVPSA has served over 1.3 million domestic violence victims and their children during one of the most vulnerable points in their lives. FVPSA provides critical funding that survivors rely on for domestic violence services such as housing, emergency shelter, transportation, childcare, and medical and legal counseling. Survivors and their families cannot wait for Congress to reauthorize this critical legislation!
