Calling all Virginia residents! Help us urge the Virginia Governor to veto VA SB 1156, a bill that threatens the safety of victims of violence.

SB 1156 will discourage survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking from calling 911. When a victim is too afraid to call for help, the risk of harm or even death to her and her children goes up significantly. The bill would make local police indistinguishable from immigration enforcers, a tactic that has been shown to discourage cooperation with local law enforcement and undermine community policing efforts. Read Tahirih’s letter to the Governor to learn more about the impact of this bill on survivors of violence.

We need your help! Here’s what you can do:

  • Call: 804-786-2211;
  • Email via this link; or
  • Tweet @GovernorVA to urge the Governor to veto SB 1156 so victims of domestic abuse, sexual violence, and human trafficking will feel safe calling 911 and reporting crime.
    • Sample: “I urge @GovernorVA to veto SB 1156 so victims of domestic abuse, sexual violence, and human trafficking will feel safe calling 911 and reporting crime.”

Thank you for your advocacy and support!
