Statement from Jess Davidson, Executive Director of End Rape on Campus, on Michigan State University's Larry Nassar Abuse Fine.

End Rape On Campus

WASHINGTON, DC (September 5, 2019) – “Accountability and transparency are necessary for schools to protect students’ rights and support survivors. It’s essential that the seriousness of Michigan State University’s failures resulted in a historic financial penalty, and at the same time, I find this penalty insufficient compared to the harm caused, especially in the face of the manipulative contradictions shown between what Secretary DeVos said and did today, and her multitude of other harmful actions and policies on Title IX,” shared Jess Davidson, End Rape on Campus Executive Director.

Statement from Jess Davidson, Executive Director of End Rape on Campus, on the Red Zone, the first 6-8 weeks of school when students are most likely to be sexually assaulted

End Rape On Campus

WASHINGTON, DC (August 26, 2019) – “The Red Zone is the first 6-8 weeks of school when students are most likely to be sexually assaulted—50 percent of sexual assaults at schools happen between August and November. Additionally, students of color, people living with disabilities, LGBTQ folks, and immigrant students are disproportionately affected by sexual assault in schools. It is unacceptable for schools to continue to shirk their duties to provide an education free from violence and discrimination. It is unacceptable for the highest leaders in the federal government, who are charged with protecting the civil rights of students, to refuse to commit to enforcing best practices established by decades of previous administrations on both sides of the aisle,” shares Jess Davidson, End Rape on Campus Executive Director.

STATEMENT ON NEW YORK TIMES REPORTS ON PROPOSED TITLE IX GUIDANCE

End Rape On Campus

“While we await the proposed rule from the Department of Education, today’s report in the New York Times is deeply concerning. To require that assaults take place on campus in order to be investigated will shut out thousands of survivors who are assaulted off-campus. To allow campuses to determine their own standard of evidence and whether or not to provide an appeals process is willfully ignorant, and will go back to a time when rape on campus was swept under the rug. To let survivors be cross-examined by a person who has violated them is downright cruel…”
