Helping to End Domestic Violence

Senator Biden traveled to Austin, Texas today to mark the tenth anniversary of the National Domestic Violence Hotline, which was created by Senator Biden’s Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). In the ten years since it launched, the Hotline has answered more than 1.6 million calls:

Surrounded by domestic violence advocates, service providers and corporate partners, United States Senator Joseph Biden and The National Domestic Violence Hotline (NDVH) today unveiled innovative new technology systems that will enable more victims to access life-saving services through the Hotline (1-800-799-SAFE).


“Across the country, millions of women take the first step to escape family violence by calling the National Domestic Violence Hotline,” said Senator Biden. “The new technology made possible by the Connections Campaign will ensure that no battered woman, man or child gets a busy signal and no victim’s life is ever put on hold.”
