Support VAWA; Protect Human Trafficking Victims
"Madam Speaker, I rise in strong support of the Violence Against Women Act, VAWA, authored by Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers. It authorizes $2.2 billion for VAWA to help victimized women and children seeking assistance to break the cycle of violence and live a life free from intimidation, fear, abuse and exploitation," said Congressman Chris Smith, (NJ-04). "VAWA is landmark legislation with a proven track record of assisting abused and battered women and must be reauthorized."
