Statement from Safe Horizon CEO Ariel Zwang on the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act

“As the nation’s leading victim assistance organization, we know how important it is that victims of violence in need of emergency shelter, case management, counseling and other essential services can access these programs without delay.  The failure of the House to consider renewing the Violence Against Women Act – which had already passed the U. S. Senate - sends a chilling message to victims of crime throughout the entire country.  We strongly urge Congress to reintroduce this comprehensive measure immediately and call on the leadership of the House to move this bill forward without delay.  Victims of violence should not be vulnerable to further abuse and even death because of political differences in Washington.”
