As you’ve probably heard by now, the Trump Administration budget is proposing drastic spending cuts. Included in these cuts are the Office of Violence Against Women (OVW) and grants overseen by the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). Read more about this.
What this means to Coburn Place is the potential for a $300,000 loss, amounting to one third of our staff funding. These cuts would be devastating.
*ACTION: Time (1 minute): Stay informed by receiving action alerts from the National Network to End Domestic Violence.
“This is (Your Name) from (City, State). Don’t eliminate funding for the Violence Against Women Act. I am asking you to block these cuts so we can protect domestic violence survivors and their children. How can we work on terrorism, but abandon victims who are controlled, afraid and ultimately killed when no services are received? Loss of this funding would be devastating.”
