Ask Your Elected Officials to Support Domestic Violence and Rape Crisis Services!

From our friends at the PCADV

The House of Representatives will negotiate amendments to the House budget bill, HB2328, this week. As advocates, we must keep the pressure on the Legislature to make the safety of PA citizens a priority with a funding increase to domestic violence and rape crisis services.

One option being considered by leadership is to pass a bare-bones budget that does not raise taxes and eliminates the Governor's proposed increase to education, human services, domestic violence and rape crisis services, so your advocacy is more crucial than ever!

Your support is more crucial than ever! You could:
  • Call your members of the General Assembly and tell them to support Amendment A07794 offered to HB 2329 by Representative Sheryl Delozier
  • Click here to send a message to your House and Senate members urging them to support Amendment A07794.
  • Click here to message Senate members requesting support for an increase in domestic violence and rape crisis services funding.
  • Ask your affiliates/partners/chapters/members/leaders to call or email their members of Congress
