Notice and Comment
Notice and comment
Recently, the New York Times leaked the Department of Education’s proposed guidance on Title IX. If these new rules go into effect, it will make schools less safe for all students. The Department of Education will release their proposed guidance on Title IX any day now -- and we know that the new rule will be detrimental to survivors. Once the rule is released, the Department is required to consider feedback from the public through a process called “Notice and Comment”. It is imperative that as many people as possible participate in Notice and Comment in order to stop this dangerous rule.
The government must listen to and consider all comments, as long as they meet certain specific requirements in order to be counted by the Department. Watch this video from Know Your IX to learn more about how you can take action and make sure your voice is heard.
EROC is working on a series of actions you can take to fight back against Betsy DeVos and her dangerous guidance, from writing letters to your members of Congress, signing a petition, to submitting your own public comment. As soon as the rule is released, we’ll send you information about each of these actions.
