Washington, DC –Congresswomen Jackie Speier (CA-14), Co-Chair of the Democratic Women’s Caucus, Annie Kuster (NH-02), Ayanna Pressley (MA-07), and Gwen Moore (WI-04) along with 55 of their colleagues sent a letter today to Education Secretary Miguel Cardona and Acting Assistant Secretary Suzanne Goldberg urging the Department of Education to issue a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on Title IX in October. In the letter, the Members lauded the  steps the Department has already taken to ensure that all students can pursue an education in safety and dignity, and urged the Department to build on that progress by issuing proposed changes to the Trump Administration’s disastrous final rule that has critically undermined schools’ and universities’ responses to sex-based harassment until Title IX.

A copy of the letter is attached below.
