Event Description

All You Need to Know on VAWA: Evictions, Petitions, Battered Spouse, Child Waiver and Other Laws

The late 1980’s – early 1990’s saw various professionals and advocates rallying against sexual assaults, women movements, victim services etc. These advocates from prosecutor’s offices, courts, private bars, law enforcement agencies and other places urged the Congress to adopt a significant legislation that addressed sexual and domestic violence. The result of these extensive grassroots efforts led to the development and sanction of The Violence against Women Act (VAWA) in 1994. The focus of VAWA today has expanded from sexual and domestic violence, to include stalking and dating violence. Various services are founded by VAWA to protect adult and teen victims, and support training on these issues – so that there is consistent response to the causes across the country.

The emphasis on coordinated community response to domestic violence, sex dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking may be considered as one of the greatest successes of VAWA where courts, prosecutors, victim services, law enforcement agencies and private bars work together which has been heretofore unseen in state and local levels. VAWA has also been supporting the work of community based organization motivated towards ending dating and domestic violence, stalking and sexual assault, and has been particularly emphasizing on those groups concerned towards providing cultural and linguistic specific services. Also, VAWA provides support to work done towards tribes and tribal organizations to end dating & domestic violence, stalking and sexual assault against Native American women.
