Senator McCaskill Calls on House to Take Action on VAWA
United States Senator Claire McCaskill held a press conference in Columbia recently, urging members of the U.S. House of Representatives to take action on the re-authorization of the Violence Against Women Act.
Also present at the press conference were staff and members of MCADSV. "Ending violence against women is a shared value among Missourians and we really want our members of Congress to pass the reauthorization and to be part of that work,” said Colleen Coble, MCADSV CEO.
VAWA, which was passed earlier this month by the Senate, does not currently have a scheduled time to be addressed by the House.
