But U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos has already taken action to roll back protections for survivors of sexual assault under the law. The Department of Education has stated that it plans to change Title IX’s regulations, which could weaken students’ civil rights and federal enforcement of Title IX. They’ve indicated the process could start as early as this month. We’re ready to fight back. Are you?
Instances of sexual violence and discrimination interfere with students’ ability to learn, and they have no place in our schools. We must speak out against any attacks on Title IX that attempt to diminish protections for students.
