Blumenthal Statement On Report By White House Task Force To Protect Students From Sexual Assault

(Washington, DC) – U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) today released the following statement on the report by the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault:

“This plan is an excellent start – a promising blueprint for addressing the scourge of sexual assault on college campuses. Now we must put specifics with this promising framework. Following the President's call to action on this critical issue, I held seven roundtables at colleges and universities across Connecticut to hear directly from students, administrators, rape counselors, medical personnel, law enforcement and parents. In the days ahead, we will release a report on the findings from those meetings, which I hope will advance the White House's efforts. I look forward to working with the Administration's Task Force to end this epidemic of violence.”
