I hope you took a moment to read Kendra’s post on Monday.
For 11 years, I worked as an advocate with domestic violence victims. I saw how laws that hold perpetrators accountable for domestic violence were critical in helping victims to move forward with their lives. Kyrsten Sinema was a key ally in the legislature in passing laws that strengthened protections for victims of domestic violence and consequences for offenders. That is one of the reasons we need her in Congress.
For the first time ever, the Violence Against Women Act has become a partisan political tool, putting victims’ lives at risk. In Congress, Kyrsten will work with members on both sides of the aisle to ensure that the Violence Against Women Act is reauthorized in a way that maintains important resources and protections for women and children. Lives in Arizona depend on it.
