National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) hosts Advocacy Days Conference during its 25th anniversary celebration
Washington, D.C. – This week, NNEDV is hosting its annual Advocacy Days Conference to advocate for improved legislation and increased funding to prevent and end domestic violence. NNEDV is celebrating its 25thanniversary this year, reflecting on the progress that has been made for survivors as well as the barriers that still exist.
Coalition leaders and victim advocates from most U.S. states and territories are in Washington, DC to meet with lawmakers and promote key legislative priorities. The Advocacy Day Conference is a chance for leaders from each state to meet with their Members of Congress to discuss vital funding and legislative concerns in order to better respond to domestic violence. These include desperately needed funding for victim service programs under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA), and the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA).
