In a 244-to-172 vote, the House of Representatives approved the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act. Jennifer Becker, deputy legal director at Legal Momentum, weighs in saying, "everything that we advocate for in VAWA is based on the reality of what we know victims are being subjected to, and what we know survivors need to seek safety, accountability, healing. These provisions are central to ensuring that people stay alive."
