The Violence Against Women Act expired more than a year ago. Now, the group Latin Women in Action is making an urgent new push for its reauthorization.

Members of the organization gathered Thursday for their second annual leadership conference. They emphasize the law is essential to stopping domestic violence.

U.S. Representatives Judy Biggert and Mike Quigley were among the speakers.
