and girls fleeing emergencies risk rape, violence, and exploitation on the road
The Safe from the
Start Act (H.R. 4092) works to address gender-based violence at the onset of
humanitarian emergencies so that we can prevent it or address its impacts
These issues are a matter of life and death for many women and girls caught in
crises. Nearly 1 in 5 women experience sexual violence during a
humanitarian setting. Please ask
your representative today to co-sponsor the Safe from the Start Act and protect
women and girls from gender-based violence.
Ask your Members of Congress to vote YES on HR.4092 this week with the e-mail template below or call 202-224-3121 and ask for
your Member of Congress!
