Location: Washington, DC

Today, Rep. Joe Crowley (D-Queens, the Bronx), Vice Chair of the House Democratic Caucus, voted to pass the Senate's strong, bipartisan bill reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act, which provides critical protections to victims of domestic violence and abuse.

"Since 1994, the Violence Against Women Act has ensured that victims of domestic violence and abuse receive critical safeguards and protections. It was long past time to renew and extend this important law, but we had to ensure we did it in a way that was a real improvement. Today, the House of Representatives had the opportunity to get it right, and I'm pleased we did. With today's passage of the bipartisan Senate bill to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act, the law is now strengthened to help protect all women, regardless of background or sexual orientation, from violence.
