Today, U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette (CO-01) released the following statement applauding passage of the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (VAWA), which extends key protections to all victims of violence:

"Today's passage of a fully inclusive VAWA is a major victory for women across the nation as it contains key protections for LGBT, American Indian, and immigrant victims, makes college campuses safer, helps solve rape crimes, and better addresses victims of human trafficking.

"To victims of violence in America this is more than a bill, it is security. It is security for our mothers, daughters, and sisters who face abuse in their lifetime."
