Tell Congress to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act immediately!
Join Senators Franken and Klobuchan and tell Congress to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act immediately!
20 years ago, Congress passed landmark legislation ensuring domestic violence is treated seriously. Now, the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act is being held up for political purposes.
Just seven years ago, this bill was reauthorized with overwhelming bi-partisan support. It passed the House 415-4 and with unanimous consent in the Senate. There's no reason that shouldn't be happening now.
We can't play political games with our children and communities.
As we have predicted since Lisa Brockington's "sexual harassment" allegations against Jack Tuckner and Tuckner, Sipser, Weinstock and Sipser, LLP first became tabloid news last June, our innocence has been vindicated. Recognizing that her claims are no longer viable, and that they were based on misunderstandings, misinterpretations, misperceptions and misinformation, Brockington has voluntarily dropped her lawsuit.
We wish to take this opportunity to thank our former and current clients, as well as our families, colleagues, friends and loyal staff, for standing by us during the several months it took to firmly establish the truth. We can now put this unseemly and distractive episode behind us and focus once again on our mission of empowering working women and men in the quest for workplace fairness and equality.
