Have Survivor Voices at the Table for Campus SaVE Act Rulemaking and Negotiations
This petition made change with 2,269 supporters!
There is growing recognition that campus sexual violence is a prevalent problem in the U.S. The 2013 Violence Against Women Act Reauthorization has implemented new law to address sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. This law is known as the Campus SaVE Act (http://clerycenter.org/campus-sexual-violence-elimination-save-act).
In 2014, rulemaking will begin for the Campus SaVE Act and we need survivor voices on the table (http://www.wtop.com/109/3467678/DC-summit-encourages-colleges-to-address-sexual-assault). This petition is in support of Laura Dunn's nomination to the rulemaking committee. Dunn is a nationally known survivor of campus sexual assault, a leader within the student activism community, and an up-and-coming legal expert in the field of campus safety (http://www.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/bestoftv/2011/04/08/exp.jvm.rape.victims.courage.hln.html).
Sign this petition now to ensure a survivor voice is at the table and that sexual violence and other forms of gender violence are meaningfully addressed on campus. Thank you in advance for your support.
