E-lert: Let’s Rescind the Dear Colleague Letter Used to Bully!
This week marks the five year anniversary that the Department of Education released a Dear Colleague Letter, directing colleges to handle campus sexual assault cases far beyond their expertise.
Moreover, this letter never went through the required channel to become a proper regulation: http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/campus-rights-group-to-challenge-federal-sexual-assault-mandate/article/2587605.
This is dangerous for students and for police investigations.
Contact your federal legislators now and tell them to help us get the Office for Civil Rights, April 4, 2011 Dear Colleague Letter to universities rescinded.

Let’s make a statement that the government cannot bully universities unlawfully!
