VAWA Expires

Yesterday, the Violence Against Women's Act expired. It had passed in the House of Representatives, but was held up in the Senate. There is still a chance that it will go through the Senate, but perhaps not without some changes to the House-approved version. I know of a lot of very important programs funded through this money. There are a lot of people - women, men and children - who are on the edges of their seats, and perhaps becoming fearful for their lives as we wait and see what happens.
