The Violence Against Women Act, a federal law that protects victims of domestic and sexual violence and funds programs that serve them, is up for reauthorization by the U.S. Congress. Some area nonprofits rely on grants from the law, but some controversial aspects of the law have made some lawmakers hesitant to support the reauthorization.The law was first passed in 1994 and has been reauthorized several times since then.
