Your help is needed to lobby Congress to exempt VOCA, the Victims of Crime Act, from federal sequestration.
VOCA is a non-taxpayer fund that does not contribute to the national debt. It is estimated that cuts to VOCA will result in 785,000 victims annually, not being able to receive the services they need!
This includes victims of domestic violence. Domestic violence agencies, including Women in Transition, depend on the VOCA to assist women.
Please contact your member of Congress and ask them to sponsor H.R. 2238 to exempt VOCA from federal sequestration.
