In America: call your legislator very soon...
Today the House of Representatives is voting on the final FY2011 budget deal that was agreed to in principle last Friday to avert a government shut-down.
The budget includes 3 reductions for the DV industry:
Legal Services Corporation (millions for lawyers to obtain ineffective restraining orders): Funded at $405 million—$15 million less than last year and $30 million less than the President’s request.
Violent Crime Reduction Fund (about half of all monies spent by this fund go for DV victims): $4.8 billion rescission. The fund is made up of fines paid by criminals and forfeited bail bonds.
United Nations Population Fund (disseminates one-sided information about domestic violence) - Reduces UNFPA funding to FY08 levels ($40 million) from FY10 levels ($55 million).
