Today, on the 20th anniversary of the Violence Against Women Act, we reaffirm that no woman should have to live in fear of violence and abuse. #VAWA has played a pivotal role in the 63% decline in intimate partner violence since 1993. Let’s keep fighting to strengthen our laws so that no woman needs to worry about her safety. #1IsTooMany #Not1More

I want to send my best wishes to Rev. Christie Melby-Gibbons, who's leaving her position as pastor of The Moravian Church of Downey after five years of service. She arrived at the church as a trailblazer -- she was the first female pastor in the congregation's history -- and has established herself as a respected pillar of the community. I wish her every success as she moves to her next assignment!
