Protections for Campus Sexual Assault Victims May Roll Back

Yesterday, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos signaled her intention to roll back protections for campus sexual assault victims put in place by the Obama Administration in 2011. The Department of Education’s actions are likely to discourage survivors from reporting sexual assaults and could prevent rapists from being held accountable.

CWLC stands with survivors and implores the Department of Education and Secretary DeVos to enforce gender equity in education. We condemn any actions that would remove protections for students on campus and we will continue to fight for equality for survivors.
