MADISON, Wis. — One Wisconsin Now Program Director Analiese Eicher released the following statements regarding the announcement by Trump’s Department of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos they will end guidance under Title IX for how universities investigate campus sexual assault.

“Repealing revised guidelines on the investigations of sexual assaults on college campuses sends victims back into the shadows, deters reporting of sexual assault and protects predators.

“With his backlog of rape kits and as the Attorney General in a state with colleges and universities that have poor track records on the handling of sexual assault, Brad Schimel must denounce the actions of Betsy DeVos and Donald Trump.

“Anything less shows Schimel takes neither the issue of campus sexual assault nor sexual assault survivors themselves seriously.”
