Women Senators, Tribal Leader Discuss Importance of VAWA


WA Senators have provided great leadership, as has Tulalip Vice-Chair Deborah Parker. Time for a thank you phone call, plus a call to your US Representative — their deliberation comes next. Pass VAWA with tribal provisions intact!

from Deborah Parker-
Attn. friends, family and VAWA supporters: We need your help! ON MONDAY, please call the Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask the operator to connect you to your Senator (or call as many key Senators as possible). When you’re connected to their offices, ask to speak to the staff person who handles VAWA. Tell

“Today is an important day, the Senator has the chance to protect all women, including Native women. It’s time to be a hero and pass a comprehensive VAWA – S.47 – including the tribal provisions and I urge
the Senator to vote NO on the Coburn Amendment. I urge you to support the Murkowski and Leahy Amendments.”

THANK YOU for helping us advance the protections of Native women across the Country. Your support is appreciated.
