From SAVE Services:
The addition of the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination (Campus SaVE) Act to last year's Violence Against Women Act increased awareness of the campus sexual assault issue, and it brought new regulations from the Department of Education.
Unfortunately, campus radicals have now exploited this effort, claiming that "one in five college women are victims of sexual assault" and insisting that "we live in a rape culture." They want to remove fundamental due process protections!
If that's not bad enough, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) is going to introduce a new bill that we believe will further erode due process protections of students accused of sexual assault.
So this week, SAVE is announcing the establishment of the Campus Justice Coalition, which will focus on legislative reforms to restore due process and fairness to the sexual assault adjudicatory process: click here
The CJC will consist of representatives of university associations, attorneys, media representatives, parents of the wrongly accused, and other concerned citizens.
Can you help with this effort? We need to raise $5,000 for media and promotion, including radio interviews, press releases, and Facebook, and we'd like to host a few DC lobbying events with CJC members.
