In a letter of support sent to Representative Nydia Velazquez, AMVETS made it strongly clear that we support the enactment of H.R. 6869, the Violence Against Women Veterans Act. We believe passage of this law will address the longstanding problem of domestic violence among veterans who deserve our best efforts to ensure they have viable options when faced with an unsafe living situation. The law calls for, among other provisions, better integration of the medical, housing, mental health, and other benefits provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs with existing community-based domestic violence and sexual assault services.
Please take a moment to send an email to your Congressional Representative to ask them to co-sponsor this important piece of legislation, or to thank them if they already have. Once you enter your address, you will automatically be shown the appropriate pre-written message based on whether or not they are a current co-sponsor.
Thank you, as always, for your support of veterans.
