Why the US Needs an Action Plan to End Gender Based Violence

NNEDV on National Action plan to End gender based violence:


While the Violence Against Women Act, Family Violence Prevention and Services Act, and Victims of Crime Act—among other federal responses— have made significant progress to address the needs of survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, a U.S. GBV NAP can provide a more comprehensive, whole-of-government approach to prevent and address GBV with an intersectional lens and a more coordinated approach across sectors, along with benchmarks. It also establishes national standards and calls for collaboration between civil society, survivors, service responders, and all levels of government, putting survivors’ knowledge, experiences, and needs at the center of solutions and services.
