ROSEN STATEMENT ON TRUMP ADMINISTRATION’S IMMORAL DECISION TO RESCIND OBAMA-ERA SCHOOL SEXUAL ASSAULT POLICY
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Jacky Rosen (NV-03) released the following statement in response to Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’ recent actions to rescind Obama-era guidance protecting survivors of sexual assault on college campuses nationwide:
“I am deeply troubled by Secretary DeVos’ move to rescind these new school sexual assault policies under Title IX,” said Rosen. “The misguided decision to revoke these protections is a step backwards for victims of sexual assault and violence. President Trump and Secretary DeVos are failing to provide a safe, transparent, and fair environment for survivors to seek justice on school campuses in Nevada and across the country. I stand with survivors everywhere against the Trump administration’s dismissive attitude and immoral actions.”
BACKGROUND: Congresswoman Jacky Rosen joined her colleagues in Congress in sending a letter urging Department of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to keep in place Title IX protections for sexual assault survivors on campuses. View full text of the letter here.
