The Dept. of Education (DED) Sex Assault Directive, along with its May 9, 2013 interpretation, abrigates fundamental notions of due process and removes the free speech rights of students and faculty.
Sweeping definitions of rape and sexual harassment, along with relaxed evidentiary standards make false allegations incredibly easy. This makes it harder for real victims to be believed.
HELP US STOP THE TYRANNY OF GOOD INTENTIONS. Call on Dept. of Ed Secretary Arne Duncan to remove its harmful Sexual Assault Directive!
