Tell Senate Republicans to stop stalling and pass the Violence Against Women Act and Savanna’s Act

1 min read

Last year, the Violence Against Women Act expired—and the House passed its reauthorization *290* days ago. Senate Republicans have blocked it.

In those 290 days, an estimated:

  • 496 women were shot & killed by partners
  • 5.3M kids exposed to domestic violence
  • 22 trans people murdered

During the 290 days Senate Republicans have blocked #VAWA100s of Native American women and girls were murdered or went missing—but we don’t know just how many.

That’s why Congress must also pass Savanna’s Act—to gather this data and address our #MMIWG epidemic.

Can you tell Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans to stop stalling and pass the Violence Against Women Act *and* Savanna’s Act?

Help save lives— call (202) 224-3121 and tell them to pass #HR1585 and #S227.

Or find who to email/Tweet @ here.

Finally—*no one* deserves to experience abuse of any kind—for any reason. If you have concerns about what’s happening in your relationship, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) or 1-800-787-3224 TTY, or chat online at They will listen and support you!

Before being elected to the California State Assembly in 2018, Buffy worked as a community organizer, an advocate for kids, and a grassroots activist with experience at the local, state and federal level. She was born in a small town in rural California and grew up in a trailer, raised by working class parents who pushed her to work hard and think big.

Buffy is proud to have been an architect of President Obama’s 2008 and 2012 campaigns. She is credited with innovating Obama’s grassroots organizing model – from right here in Oakland. In addition to playing a critical role in his momentous electoral victories, Buffy served alongside him in the White House. In her leadership role at the Office of Public Engagement, Buffy brought stakeholders and advocates from across the country together to support and eventually pass the Affordable Care Act, which has provided more than 20 million Americans with health care, including 5 million here in California.

Since arriving in Sacramento, Buffy has been a tireless advocate for working families across California, using her experience as an organizer and leader on policy to fight for and pass bills defending the rights and strengthen the livelihood of all her constituents.

Buffy lives in Oakland with her husband Peter and her two-and-a-half-year-old daughter Josephine, also known as JoJo.
