A couple of things from SAVE

he University of Montana has recently implemented new sexual assault guidelines and created a series of personal empowerment awareness videos for students. Unfortunately, the videos are spreading misinformation about rape, and the guidelines are restricting the civil rights of falsely accused students.

Jordan Johnson

The videos are based on claims by the Justice Department that are wholly unverified -- such as "80 reported rapes" at the university in the past three years. The videos even promote the untrue statistic that only 2 percent of rape accusations are false.

Montana quarterback Jordan Johnson was charged with rape despite all evidence pointing to his innocence. His accuser admitted to her friends "I don't think he did anything wrong to be honest," but prosecutors continued with the case inviting, as an investigation reported, "the possible conviction of an innocent defendant."

In a letter to Univ. of Montana President Royce Engstrom, Stop Abusive and Violent Environments (SAVE) has requested that the university immediately remove the damaging videos from its curriculum.

We'd like your help. Tell Royce Engstrom to withdraw his biased sex assault videos and to respect the rights of accused students, who are innocent until proven guilty.

And this.

The U.S. Department of Education (DED)'s 2011 sexual assault directive has resulted in a number of false allegations and wrongful convictions. High profile cases involve the University of Hawaii at Manoa, the University of North Dakota, Cornell University, the University of North Carolina, Brown University, Xavier University, Yale University, and the University of Montana.

SAVE believes that holding false accusers accountable will result in a reduction of false allegations. Today, we're asking you to write to Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. Tell him, "False Accusers Must be Held Accountable!"

Secretary of Education Arne Duncan:

Oh behalf of every male student on campus, thank you!
