Talk to Senator Blumenthal about the Campus Accountability and Safety Act

The Campus Accountability and Safety Act (CASAct) is the most prominent university sexual violence bill in the pipeline right now. Original cosponsor Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) calls the bill “a work in progress” and is holding a roundtable discussion at Wesleyan to discuss the legislation and how the federal government can improve the experiences of survivors of sexual violence at universities and can better hold universities accountable in their handling of sexual violence.

Senator Blumenthal and his staff are hoping to hear about Wesleyan community members’ experiences with sexual violence and all aspects of the adjudication process to inspire improvements to the bill. They are asking for our thoughts and feedback on the Campus Accountability and Safety Act and for ways Wesleyan and other universities can improve sexual violence prevention and adjudication.
