We just learned the Massachusetts House of Representatives will debate TODAY on Supplemental Budget Bill H.4532. We need all hands on deck ASAP - call your Representative and ask them to support Rep. Decker's Amendment #41: The VOCA Bridge.

The VOCA Bridge is a $20 million investment to bridge one year of impending cuts to Children's Advocacy Centers, services for child victims of commercial sexual exploitation and trafficking, and other victim service programs funded by VOCA (Victims of Crime Act).

Governor Baker's supplemental budget included funding for the FULL $60 million dollars to cover 3 years, we are quite concerned that the legislature has not followed his administration's prioritization of this CRITICAL funding.

Services for child & adult survivors are in jeopardy!
