APA Efforts Facilitate Introduction of Critical Interpersonal Violence Bill

In October 2011, APA’s Public Interest Government Relations Office worked with Senator Kay Hagan (D-NC) in support of the introduction of the Consolidation of Grants to Strengthen the Healthcare System’s Response to Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Sexual Assault, and Stalking Act (S. 1765). This legislation focuses on strengthening the healthcare system's response to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking and is similar to APA-supported legislation that was introduced in the House of Representatives earlier this year.
