Title IX Comment Writing Drive
Please join ACS and the Equality Alliance on Tuesday, January 22nd, in Room 124 for an action lunch to submit comments to the Department of Education on its latest proposal to reduce protections for students against sexual harassment and assault.
Late last year, the Department of Education issued a notice of proposed rulemaking, kicking off the process of writing regulations that would significantly reduce schools’ obligations to respond to sexual harassment and violence under Title IX of the Education Amendments Act.
Snacks will be provided as we get together to draft and submit individual comments on the proposed rule. We will kick off with a brief overview of the proposal by 3L Mara Shingleton. Then, we will each draft comments for submission to the Department. Your comment can be as short or as comprehensive as you would like, and if you can’t make the event or don’t think you’ll finish in time, you can still submit a comment (so long as you meet the January 28th deadline). Our goal is to empower students to participate in a rulemaking process that will affect us and students on campuses across the country.
