Sign A Petition To Include Men In VAWA Funding

I'm sorry that I haven't been able to report on VAWA II recently, but unfortunately it looks like the bill is going to pass. As many of you know, the Violence Against Women Act is supposed to provide around 4 BILLION dollars to combat domestic violence - and is politically aimed to provide support for women specifically. There is no explicit provision in VAWA to acknowledge and fund programs for male victims of DV, and many believe that men can be explicitly discriminated against with this law. Please sign this petition to support the amendment of the bill to include men in recognition and funding for DV prevention programs and shelters. Thanks to an anonymous reader for forwarding this to me.
