Freedom from Sexual Violence

Event: Your Voice Counts: New Title IX draft rule on school sexual violence and how to draft a comment


Wednesday, Dec. 19th from 12 pm-1:30 pm Mountain Time (duration 1.5 hours)
Presented By: Ending Violence Against Women Project of CDAC and the Colorado Coalition Against Sexual Assault, and features national Title IX attorney and expert Cari Simon

By now you have likely heard that the U.S. Department of Education recently published a proposed Title IX regulation that would fundamentally change schools’ responsibilities to respond to sexual harassment, sexual assault, stalking, and dating violence in our K-12 schools and college campuses. Right now, it is only a draft rule and there is an opportunity for anyone in the public to voice your opinion during the formal Notice and Comment period until January 28.

We invite you to a webinar to learn about the proposed rule and how to write and submit a comment. Colorado has significant interest, expertise, and concern about survivors in our schools, and we want to make sure we effectively make our voices heard. This training will explain how the proposed rule changes schools required response to sexual misconduct, and how you or your organization can draft and submit a meaningful comment. We will also be available to conduct technical assistance on specific comments.
