Tell Betsy DeVos: #HandsOffIX

Betsy DeVos has officially submitted her Title IX regulations that will harm the rights of sexual assault survivors, and make schools a more dangerous place. Now that the regulation has been submitted, we have 60 days to submit comments on the regulation, which the Department of Education is legally bound to consider.
