This week, in honor of the 17th anniversary of the passage of the Violence Against Women Act, Vice President Biden launched a website for the “1 is 2 Many” campaign to focus attention on the issue of violence against young women. In this video, Biden raises awareness about the staggering rates of sexual assault on college campuses and teen dating violence. The numbers say it all- according to statistics, nearly 20% of women report experiencing attempted or completed sexual assault since entering college and 1 in 10 teens were physically hurt by a boyfriend or girlfriend last year alone.
Thank you, Mr. Vice President, for your years of leadership and continued commitment to these issues. Watch the video, learn the facts, and help JWI take action.
