Quick Hit Action Alert: Restore VAWA Funding.

As many of us already know, Bush’s budget proposal for 2009 includes a $120 million cut from the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). Joe Biden has a bill on the floor of the Senate today requesting $100 million to be restored to the program. Tell your senator to vote for this much-needed amendment.

    I would, but I don’t have a senator. Oh,DC…Gotta love that whole taxation without representation thing. I did pass it on to a few friends who technically live in Maryland, though!
