The changes Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, has proposed will have detrimental life-long consequences to our current and future generations of students. This does not just effect college age students. Title IX Regulations are also for K-12 students. All students have a right to attend school free from sexual assault and harassment of any kind, including those that happen off-campus by students.
I cried when I saw the news that our campaign to recall Judge Aaron Persky was successful. There hasn’t been a judge recalled in the state of California for 86 years, but we did it! Although I wasn’t able to vote because I don’t live in Santa Clara county, I know I helped by speaking up and sharing. I have a renewed sense of determination. My tanks have been refilled, I can keep going in my fight to seek justice for victims.
