End Rape on Campus (EROC) is a survivor advocacy organization dedicated to ending sexual violence through survivor support, public education, and policy and legislative reform.

We provide free, direct assistance to all survivors of gender-based and sexual violence on campus interested in filing federal complaints, organizing for change, or drawing public attention to hold their schools accountable.

We have assisted hundreds of students at dozens of schools file Title IXClery Act, and other civil rights complaints to seek justice and reform.

Statement from End Rape on Campus Executive Director Jess Davidson on Title IX Comment Period Reopening for 24 Hours:


“On the final day of the comment period, the Department of Education silenced survivors’ and advocates’ voices and failed to properly capture comments. This technical error repeats this administration’s pattern of harm that disproportionately hurts survivors and other communities that face systemic barriers. We pointed out to the Department they were violating the law by not giving access to survivors to participate in our democratic processes.

“We are pleased that the Department is conceding they were failing to properly administer notice-and-comment and are opening the comment period for an additional 24 hours this Friday, February 15. We’ll mobilize our communities to utilize this opportunity to make our voices heard. But, this is not enough. If the Department was really serious about soliciting feedback on the rule, they would have been more intentional about listening to survivor voices and the voices of those most impacted by this issue. And, they would strike the rule -- one that was written not just with a lack of understanding of the population most impacted by it, but a policy that expresses disdain for survivors, and a desire to make their lives as difficult as possible. This rule is clearly not informed by survivors’ experiences, and the massive response to it -- more than 104,000 comments -- shows that.”
