Sanders Statement on DeVos Title IX Announcement

NEW YORK, Sept. 7 – U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement Thursday after Education Secretary Betsy DeVos announced she intends to replace the campus sexual assault enforcement under Title IX guidelines written by the Obama administration:

Today, Secretary DeVos made an outrageous and unfortunate announcement that she plans to overturn an Obama initiative than protected women on college campuses from sexual assault. Campus sexual assault is a major problem, and it must be dealt with. We must do everything possible to make sure our campuses are safe for all students. This decision does a disservice to those who have worked hard to address sexual violence. Congress must now act to undo another terrible decision from the Trump administration."
