Take Action for Title IX

Campus sexual assault is a significant issue across the United States with 1 in 5 women and 1 in 20 men reported to have experienced some form of sexual assault in college. However, despite these staggering numbers, on November 16th, the Department of Education released proposed changes to Title IX regulations, which would significantly weaken protections for survivors of sexual assault.

These proposed regulations will make schools less safe for students by narrowing the definition of sexual harassment to exclude much of the abuse students experience, limiting when schools need to respond, and putting processes in place that will make it more difficult for students to come forward and report when they experience sexual harassment or assault.

The Zonta USA Caucus is adamantly opposed to these new regulations and encourages all Zonta members and supporters in the United States to voice their opposition to these regulations and prevent their implementation. Add your name to our letter  to Secretary DeVos, urging the Department of Education to withdraw the proposed regulations.

Reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act

Violence Against Women Act

Support Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act

One in three women in the United States has been a victim of some form of physical violence by an intimate partner and one in five women in the United States has been raped in their lifetime. The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), landmark legislation first passed with bipartisan support in 1994, provides critical support for victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking. The Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2018 (H.R. 6545) supports the continuation of essential programs and services under the original bill while providing for critical improvements.

Contact your representative today to urge them to support reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act.
