Last week, Vice President Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden hosted a reception at their home at the Naval Observatory to mark the 16th anniversary of VAWA and The Hotline and loveisrespect, National Teen Dating Abuse Helpline were honored to be a part of the celebration.
The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) was a landmark piece of legislation that in addition to other great achievements, created the National Domestic Violence Hotline.

We thank him and the other legislators responsible for VAWA for their hard work on behalf of victims. Please read the article that ran on the White House blog to learn more about VAWA.
