Step 6: Now Tell Us About Your Successes!
If you have followed the first five Alerts, you have already requested a
meeting with your Congressman. (If you haven't done this yet, it's not
too late to request your meeting - but time is running out!!)
As soon as you hold your meeting, please report the results of your
meeting to RADAR. Please answer these 5 questions:
Name of Congressman (or Senator) and state
Date of your meeting
Did the staffer or Congressman appear to be supportive of your request to call for civil rights hearings on VAWA abuse?
Were there any particular sub-issues (false accusation, male victims, mandatory arrest, etc.) that particularly attracted the staffer's interest?
Please send your information to RADAR at
will compile this information and provide feedback shortly after the
November 7 election.
Date of RADAR Release: August 7, 2006
