At a time when millions of women are speaking out about their experiences of sexual and gender-based violence, we can no longer count on the federal government to vigorously enforce the laws that are supposed to protect the civil rights of vulnerable students, including those who have experienced sexual assault. We need attorneys like you in this crucial work.
