Dear Colleague:

Domestic violence is not a singular incident – it is a disturbing problem deeply rooted in our society. It impacts constituents of every color and creed and knows no congressional line or party affiliation. Nearly 20 Americans are physically abused by an
intimate partner per minute, equating to more than 10 million women and men per year. Over the course of their lifetime, 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men have been victims of severe physical violence by an intimate partner. This disturbing societal issue needs
our attention.

To learn how you can make an impact, Co-Chairs Reps. Debbie Dingell, Ryan Costello, Gwen Moore, and Debbie Lesko invite the Members of the 115th Congress to join the Bipartisan Working Group to End Domestic Violence. The caucus was formed to convene
a bipartisan group of Congress members and key stakeholders who are dedicated to ending domestic violence, creating innovative prevention strategies, and strengthening resources for survivors and their children. The caucus hosts one-hour monthly meetings where
experts explore the varied policy implications of domestic violence and how Congress can craft legislative improvements for survivors and prevention programs for future generations. Caucus members and their staff are encouraged to attend the monthly discussions
and weigh in on future topics to highlight.

The next caucus meeting will be on Wednesday, June 13 at 4:00 PM and will explore when technology is used to abuse. We look forward to an eye-opening discussion from experts in the tech field.
