Topic - What Have You Done America?
Posted: January 26 2017 at 8:11pm By Penham
Well I'm disgusted at this point and I was willing to give Trump a chance even though I did not vote for him, I didn't vote for Hillary either, I voted Libertarian for the first time in my life. His decision to move forward with the Dakota Access Pipeline is a very poor move from an environmental standpoint, but then who needs clean water and land (insert sarcasm). Then I understand that he is looking at ending all the VAWA funding to states, this is money set aside for the Violence Against Women's Act, that is given to states to help pay for domestic violence services to victims. It helps pay for services to shelters, counseling, victim advocates, relocation, etc.

To add to both of those items. I am Native American, so the Standing Rock issue is two-fold for me. Plus the domestic violence aspect, I work under a VAWA grant, I make domestic violence services available to women in rural areas that have no transportation, no money, no job, sometimes not even a phone. So to me both are bad decisions.
