Entry Title Date
Unlv’S Take Back The Night September 15, 2014
Harry Reid, D-NV
"The event is one of UNLV’s oldest traditions. Hosted by the wonderful Jean Nidetch Women’s Center, this event has done an amazing job of raising awareness about sexual assault and other forms of interpersonal violence including dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking. Take Back the Night is a worldwide event, and UNLV’s branch has received numerous awards over the years. For instance, 2 years ago, as well as this year, the UNLV branch won the “Outstanding Collaborative Program” award; and in 2008, it won the “Outstanding Annual Program/Tradition” award."
Customer Protection And End User Relief Act June 23, 2014
K. Conaway, R-TX
"I am going to oppose the gentlewoman’s amendment because her amendment is a stalking horse, because it would simply replace the bipartisan, well-crafted consideration for the new cost-benefit analysis for the CFTC with a sense of Congress. That, in my view, would gut and negate the value of having the agency actually go through, as they propose a rule, to determine what will be the cost and what will be the benefits."
Condemning The Mass Shooting In Isla Vista, California June 10, 2014
Jackie Speier, D-CA
"The Virginia Tech killer had been investigated by the university for stalking and had been declared mentally ill by a Virginia special justice. The Isla Vista shooter also had a long history of mental illness."
Remembering Demi Brae Cuccia May 9, 2014
Keith Rothfus, R-PA
"Teen-dating violence such as physical, emotional, or sexual abuse and stalking is unacceptable. No child deserves to be subjected to abuse and violence. As a father of six, my heart goes out to the family and friends of Demi, especially her parents, Dr. Gary and Jodi Cuccia."
Justice For All Reauthorization Act May 1, 2014
Patrick Leahy, D-VT
"The Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act, which I was proud to co-author with Senator Mike Crapo, a Republican from Idaho, strengthens protections on campuses, where far too many students have become victims of devastating violence instead of enjoying the wonderful experience of learning and growth that we all wish for our children. Our bill, which was signed into law last year, ensures that college students are informed of the resources available to them if they are victims of sexual assault or stalking, and of their school’s planned response to such crimes."
