Betsy DeVos has proposed changes to Title IX legislation. The public has just 60 days for comment. Make your voice heard.

"Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., ranking member of the U.S. Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, called on DeVos to withdraw the proposal at a Wednesday news conference in Washington, D.C.

“Secretary DeVos’ proposed rule will return us to a time when sexual-assault survivors were ignored and felt like they had nowhere to turn,” she said. “It is clear from this rule that Secretary DeVos did not listen.”

Murray is also supporting calls to extend the public-comment period.

Sexual-assault survivors and advocates — including a survivor of ex-gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar and a 14-year-old who said she was sexually assaulted by a peer — joined Murray.

Jess Davidson, executive director of End Rape on Campus, said she went through the Title IX process in college. She said her perpetrator was found responsible, but not until after graduation. Because of how long her case took, she said she walked across the graduation stage the same day he did.

“While the system was really flawed for me, I was grateful that there was an alternative system I could turn to,” Davidson said, explaining that she didn’t want to go to law enforcement.

Davidson said she and other advocates have been working to improve the Title IX process for survivors, and that DeVos’ changes would roll back that progress."

How to submit your feedback:

The Title IX proposed rule can be found on the Federal Register.

The public has until Jan. 28 to provide feedback, which can be submitted through the Federal eRulemaking Portal.
