NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James and a coalition of 23 additional attorneys general from around the country today urged the U.S. Senate to take action to protect women nationwide by reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act, which expired more than a year ago. In a letter to Senate leadership, Attorney General James and the coalition point out that as isolation and uncertainty during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) public health crisis has increased, so too have the risks to women who have fallen victim to domestic violence, requiring immediate action from the Senate.
