Cosponsor the Bipartisan Violence Against Women Health Act of 2018

Please join us in cosponsoring the bipartisan Violence Against Women Health Act. In 2005, Congress reauthorized the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) which included a new health title to develop a public health response to abuse by strengthening the health
care system’s identification, assessment and response of victims. To date, the VAWA Health program has trained more than 13,000 health care providers to assess for and respond to domestic and sexual violence in over 230 clinical settings serving more than
1.3 million patients. More patients are being screened, but more collaboration between health systems and advocates is needed to connect victims to services, help them escape the abuse, and improve their overall health and safety.

Join the House Tech Accountability Caucus

We invite you to join the House Tech Accountability Caucus, a group of legislators who seek to engage Congress, the technology sector, and the American people on the critical need to foster an innovative, inclusive, and accountable tech sector.
 
It is difficult to understate the outsized impact the technology sector has on our country. Not only does America’s digital economy support over 7 million jobs, it is reshaping the way we live and work. 
 
As companies continue to innovate, and the tech sector continues to grow, both industry and consumers are faced with new challenges with respect to data and consumer protection, workplace concerns, federal regulations, and the social impact of new technologies.
 
Through legislation, hearings, roundtable discussions, and briefings, the Caucus aims to work with industry in establishing accountability standards to ensure that American tech companies continue to thrive and innovate in an inclusive and accountable manner.

Remove Marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act: Support H.R. 1227, the Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2017

Even though 31 states have legalized medical marijuana and over 60 percent of Americans support legalization, marijuana is still listed under Schedule 1 of the Controlled Substances Act. Enforcing federal prohibition of marijuana will only serve
to increase incarcerations, prevent invaluable research into its medicinal benefits, and create financial barriers for businesses.
