The Texas Council on Family Violence (TCFV) and the Texas Association Against Sexual Assault (TAASA) jointly laud Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison for her leadership and wisdom in supporting S.1925, the bill reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act.

The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) represents the federal government’s commitment to addressing violence against women in innovative and life saving approaches to the coordinated community response, which includes law enforcement, prosecutors, the courts, and victim services. VAWA funds training and direct services in response to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking.

Gloria Terry, TCFV President, said today, “Our nation and Texas are better for having VAWA; women and families are safer as a direct result of VAWA.”
