Assembly Passes Sexual Assault Bill
A bill passed in the California assembly will better prepare college students to prevent and recover from sexual assault.
Assembly member Jenny Oropeza introduced Assembly bill 1088 which was passed by a 4 to 1 vote.
Oropeza says colleges and universities must ensure access to “crucial information” and create an atmosphere where sexual assault is not tolerated. She adds that too many college students are not receiving essential information.
The bill proposes a requirement for colleges and universities to educate every incoming student on prevention of sexual assaults on campus. The bill now goes before the Assembly Appropriations Committee.
