Today marks the 26th anniversary of the Violence Against Women Act. There was a time in American history when domestic violence wasn’t considered a crime — in 1993, Joe Biden introduced legislation that finally addressed violent crimes against women. And in 1994, VAWA became law, protecting millions of women.
Last year, a bipartisan coalition in the House of Representatives passed the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2019 (VAWA 2019). There’s no reason the Senate shouldn’t pass this reauthorization now, but if they don’t, Joe Biden will get it done as one of his first acts as president.

Former Vice President Joe Biden is running for president to restore the soul of the nation. He believes it’s time to remember who we are. We’re Americans: tough and resilient. We choose hope over fear. Science over fiction. Truth over lies. And unity over division. We are the United States of America. And together, there is not a single thing we can’t do.
