Help rescind the "dear colleague" letter

Students returning to campuses are facing the curtailment of student civil rights, thanks to a 2011 U.S. Department of Education (DED) sex assault mandate. Stop Abusive and Violent Environments (SAVE) is calling on the federal agency to retract the Directive, and restore due process to campuses across the nation.

Under the policy, rather than the usual "reasonable doubt" standard used in courts of law, colleges are now mandated to use the 50.1% "preponderance of evidence" standard when adjudicating claims of sexual assault.

Release of the Directive has resulted in a number of high-profile debacles across the country:click here

SAVE wants to stop the Directive from inviting false allegations, which harm the credibility of true victims and dissipate needed services for victims.

Help us convince the DED to rescind the Directive. Sign the petition: sign the petition or write to Secretary of Education Arne Duncan:

Thank you!

Or we can do both,sign the petition and contact Arne Duncan. Let's see if the Obama administration reaches out to men,a voting bloc they desperately need or are they going to make Team Romney clean up their mess on January 21 or after. Let's see.
