A reminder as we approach the new year — House Republicans still haven’t renewed the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). Their objections, as voiced by Majority Leader Eric Cantor, continue to center around extending rights to Native American tribes who, as we’ve shared before, suffer disproportionately from sexual assault and domestic violence because they lack the authority to prosecute assailants from beyond their borders. The Republicans also object to extending rights to immigrants and members of LGBT community.
On another note — tomorrow is the last day of regular season football. Who are you rooting for? I’ll be rooting for the Green Bay Packers and the Washington Redskins to win.
