Domestic Violence Laws and Legislation

Law and policy play an essential role in society’s response to domestic violence.

The policy issues that affect domestic violence victims and programs are very far-reaching—from criminal law, to economic justice, to public funding for shelters and programs. 

PCADV works diligently to make sure that legislators understand the needs of domestic violence victims and the programs that serve them, and we encourage you to join us in our public policy work. 

Let your lawmaker know your views and help improve the systemic response to domestic violence.
