what's the point of an apology?
Many colleges and universities are now getting their arms twisted into improving their policies and practices due to public pressure and the threat of an investigation or sanctions by the Office of Civil Rights for failing to comply with Title IX, but students remain skeptical — and for good reason.
There have been an increased number of proposed laws meant to address campus sexual violence on the state and federal level, but these get caught up in the slow-turning wheels of bureaucracy. The #JustSaySorry campaign offers schools a simple and immediate means to begin to cure past harms and to foster a sense of trust and safety with their students. No excuses, no lofty promises — just apologies.
come back soon for exciting updates about #justsaysorry.
In the meantime, help us grow this campaign!
