In early July, The Nation partnered with Know Your IX, a national survivor-run campaign to fight campus sexual violence. Together we called on Congress to give the Department of Education the tools to hold colleges accountable for their treatment of sexual assault. At the end of the month, a group of senators introduced the Campus Accountability and Safety Act, a bill that would do just that. Although advocates still need to ensure that the bill is passed, members of Know Your IX see its introduction as an important step forward in the quest to hold colleges accountable for campus sexual assault. “We’re glad to see this bipartisan effort, rooted in students’ experiences on the ground and their recommendations, moving forward,” they said. “It’s a promising step toward building campuses that are safe for students of all genders.”
