VAWA Reauthorization

VAWA Reauthorization

In March of 2022, President Biden signed into law the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). This is momentous news as the law provides national funding for violence prevention, victim support resources, research, and guidance for agencies’ response to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking. These crimes have come to the forefront of the national conversation with a rise in prevalence, especially during the global COVID-19 pandemic. Attention and funding to the prevention and response of these crimes is a positive step in aiding victims and advancing the field of research on violence prevention.
