VAWA Reauthorization, Restorative Practice, and Diversion

19 Nov 2021 11:29 AM | Anonymous

As the U.S. Senate considers reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), One Place strongly opposes the “Restorative Practice” and “Diversion” sections, as currently worded, in the House-approved (HR1620) version of VAWA Reauthorization. We support efforts to find alternatives to criminal justice system intervention in domestic violence cases, when they are safe for survivors and evidence-based.  To read more of our analysis of this current bill to Alabama Senators Richard Shelby and Tommy Tuberville, click here: Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Letter.pdf
