Roy Blunt, United States Senator for Missouri Dear Unity, As a father of four and grandfather of six, I know that protecting our children is one of the nation's most important responsibilities. Missouri has 22 Children's Advocacy Centers that serve 7,000 of our state's most vulnerable children each year. *And this week, Congress took an important step to ensure the safety of our children when the House passed [link 1] a bill I introduced in the Senate, the bipartisan reauthorization of the "Victims of Child Abuse Act."* This legislation, which I introduced [link 2] with Senator Coons [link 3] from Delaware, would help centers in Missouri and nationwide continue the important work they do to provide safe haven for child abuse victims, while also helping law enforcement officials hold perpetrators accountable. I was honored to receive Missouri KidsFirst's "Standing with Children [link 4]" Award this year, and I am pleased my colleagues in both the House and the Senate worked together to send this bill to the president's desk.
