In the wake of controversy over Yale University’s response to the Delta Kappa Epsilon march–where students chanted, “No means yes! Yes means anal!”–the national debate over campus safety has been inflamed once again. Activists argue that a school’s failure to ensure a safe environment for all students is a violation of rights guaranteed by Title IX, included as part of the Education Amendments Act of 1972. But even schools that pride themselves on responsiveness to the issue of sexual violence on campus are part of a disappointing nationwide phenomenon–despite policy overhauls and awareness events, the campus rape statistics haven’t budged in years.

“...in a system that is so deeply rooted in injustice, we have a very long way to go until prosecutors can truly claim to belong to a profession where they do justice.”

Emily Bazelon's new book, "Charged" is out today. I had the opportunity to review it for @HarvardCRCL.
Bazelon’s call to action is not subtle. Its urgency jumps off the page; it will destroy any remaining belief you have that our criminal system is just.
Great piece by @NoMoreDeaths on @HarvardCRCL "We believe that attempts to criminalize the humanitarian aid work our group and others like it perform are part of a larger, systemic movement against undocumented people in the US." #AbolishICE #ChingaLaMigra #abolishicebox https://t.co/356hbb4TOe
