ATLANTA, GA – End Rape On Campus (EROC) strongly condemns the recent House vote to invoke the Congressional Review Act (CRA) in an attempt to block the newly implemented Title IX regulations. These regulations are critical for ensuring the safety, equity, and protection of students across the nation, particularly those who have experienced sexual violence and discrimination.

The new Title IX regulations represent a significant advancement in safeguarding students’ rights. They provide clear and effective mechanisms for addressing sexual harassment and assault, and they extend vital protections to LGBTQ+ students. By seeking to overturn these regulations, the House vote threatens to undermine years of advocacy and progress toward creating safer, more inclusive educational environments.

“We cannot afford to turn back the clock on Title IX protections. Doing so would not only endanger the safety of countless students but also send a dangerous message that their rights and experiences are not valued. At EROC, we are committed to fighting for the rights of all students and ensuring that their voices are heard and respected,” said Chief Executive Officer, Kenyora Parham.

EROC calls on the Senate to reject this resolution and to stand with us in protecting the essential Title IX regulations that so many students depend on. These protections are fundamental to creating educational environments where all students can feel safe and supported.
