Education Secretary Betsy DeVos announced that the Trump administration will roll back protections for sexual assault victims on campus put in place by President Obama. This is offensive, outrageous and a cruel betrayal of students.
Survivors of sexual assault have too often been let down by their universities and re-victimized by this broken system when what they deserve is justice and a fair process for all. What they deserve is to be heard. What they deserve is to be believed.
I hear them. I believe them. And if you do too, I hope you’ll join me in urging Congress to pass legislation to hold colleges and universities accountable, increase transparency and give schools more resources to support survivors of sexual assault. We need to take this into our own hands and act now. It is ridiculous that in this day and age a university can have a different process to investigate and punish sexual assault for their athletes than for other students.
Thank you for standing up for what’s right,Kirsten
