A collective of 124 organizations focused on gender justice and survivor advocacy released a letter addressed to President Biden calling on the administration to fulfill its promise to finalize their 2022 proposed Title IX regulations by May.
Last year’s proposed regulations were an important step toward realizing Title IX’s full potential. But Advocates for Youth, End Rape On Campus, Equal Rights Advocates, Girls Inc , It’s On Us, Know Your IX , National Alliance to End Sexual Violence, National Women’s Law Center, and The Every Voice Coalition, are calling on the Department of Education to take action to finalize these regulations to enact meaningful change across campuses.
“We as advocates are continuing to see student survivors experience punishment, retaliation, and forced leaves of absence, transfer schools, or drop out entirely due to the 2020 Title IX regulations, which give schools permission to shirk their responsibility to protect students. Students will continue to suffer under the harms of the Trump administration’s Title IX rules until the Biden administration intervenes.”
