Stopping Campus Sexual Assault

The current system for handling campus sexual assault cases, based on a 2011 Department of Education mandate, is broken. SAVE has compiled numerous resources and solutions, including information about:

  • Myths
  • False allegations
  • Legislation

Inclusive VAWA

The 2013 reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act features a new Inclusion Mandate that bans discrimination on the basis of “race, color, religion, national origin, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability.”

In response, SAVE has established the Inclusive-VAWA Resource Center.


Safe Campus Act: Taking Rape Seriously, Restoring Due Process

The Safe Campus Act (H.R. 3403):

  1. Establishes the lead role for law enforcement agencies in handling allegations of criminal sexual violence
  2. Recognizes the appropriate role of campus disciplinary committees
  3. Clarifies and strengthens campus disciplinary procedures

Turning Nearly Everyone into a Sex Offender

Activists are seeking to impose sweeping changes on sexual assault policies by implementing affirmative consent requirements and expanding definitions of illegal sexual contact.

Activists are focusing on these areas:

  1. Criminal law
  2. College campuses
  3. Military settings

The effect of these changes would be to remove the presumption of innocence from the accused and turn 99% of all Americans into sex offenders.
