On Monday, September 14, Women for Biden will host a national event with Jill Biden to commemorate the 26th anniversary of the enactment of the Violence Against Women Act, which falls on September 13. The event, titled “VAWA at 26: Women Unite in Progress,” will focus on the importance of the Violence Against Women Act and why we need to renew and strengthen it, especially in light of increased gender-based violence during this pandemic.

The event will feature a panel discussion moderated by Symone Sanders with four advocates: North Dakota Rep. Ruth Buffalo, Tracey Vitchers, Melissa Bryant, and Karma Cottman.
