The Tyler Clementi Higher Education Anti-Harassment Act: Stopping Harassment on College Campuses

Today, Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) is introducing the Tyler Clementi Higher Education Anti-Harassment Act. This bill is an important step forward in stopping harassment on college campuses. It is named after the former Rutgers University student who, in 2010, tragically took his own life after his roommate used a webcam to spy on him kissing another man and spread links to the webcam stream via Twitter.

The Act would require colleges and universities receiving federal aid to develop and distribute a campus harassment policy that would:

  • apply to harassment based on race, color, national origin, sex, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or religion;
  • prohibit harassment of students, faculty, and staff;
  • describe the school’s harassment prevention programs;
  • explain the procedures that a student should follow if he or she is harassed; and
  • set out the procedures that the school will follow once an incident has been reported, including possible sanctions to be imposed in a disciplinary proceeding.

The bill also provides for a grant program to help post-secondary schools start, expand, or improve their harassment prevention programs or educate and train students, faculty and staff about ways to prevent harassment and/or address harassment if it occurs.

The National Women’s Law Center supports this Act and applauds Senator Lautenberg for his efforts to get universities to focus on addressing harassment, which so often can deprive students of the equal educational opportunities they deserve.

Dear Madam:

In service of the United States Supreme Court, our Sacred and Revered Judicial Institution:

(1) Here are 2 excerpts from oral argument presented by Virginia to the US Supreme Court in 1967 to defend its law making it a felony for a black man to marry a white women:

"I do not say that the author of this book would advocate the prohibition of such marriages by law but we do say that he personally and clearly expresses his view as a social scientist that interracial marriages are definitely undesirable that they hold no promise for a bright and happy future for mankind."

"Dr. Gordon has stated it as his opinion that it is my conviction that intermarriage is definitely (Inaudible) that they are wrong because they are most frequently if not solely entered into under the present day circumstances by people who have a rebellious attitude towards -- towards society, self-hatred, neurotic tendencies, immaturity and other detrimental psychological factors."

(2) Addressing the Actual Issue Presented

Although supporting heterosexual couples’ unintended children may be a rational basis for (1) granting marriage rights to (2) opposite sex couples, this is not at issue. The challenged government’s action is whether it is permissible under the Equal Protection Clause to (1) deny marriage rights to (2) same-sex couples. Consequently, rational bases supporting the grant of heterosexual marriage are irrelevant; such government action is not being challenged as contrary the Equal Protection Clause.

Marriage is not a zero-sum institution. Granting one couple a marriage does not diminish the availability of marriage licenses or diminish the legal import of preexisting marriages. Indeed, the social benefits of having two adults commit to support one another apply equally, irrespective of sexual orientation.

Sincerely,

"I am certainly not an advocate for frequent and untried changes in laws and constitutions. I think moderate imperfections had better be borne with; because, when once known, we accommodate ourselves to them, and find practical means of correcting their ill effects. But I know also, that laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths disclosed, and manners and opinions change with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also, and keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy, as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors."

Prenatal

Though it was not recommended not to place a bumper in the crib, I liked that this one was 'breathable'. We bought the Britax brand because we take long car trips to visit family, so several hours in the car we wanted a very safe seat as well as comfortable. I got rid of my bench press b/c 1) it took up too much space and 2) bench press is somewhat an overrated exercise. --CONCLUSION-- These buds are using technology I'm not sold on.. Prenatal
I have only had this for two weeks, but I love it. Anybody else get this?? They didn't tear straight & I who has time to use sissors when grabbing for a paper towel? But they do what I'm buying them for & at a great price. Overall, it was worth the price (especially since I got a discount for buying more than 3 copies - several of my bridge friends bought at the same time). Second, to skip ahead in the book to pages 272-73, Dennett makes what should be considered elementary errors of logic, even if being used to some degree as rhetorical talking points. This fragrance has always been one of my favorites since it was released. Needless to say, I was thrilled to find it here. Organic Vitamins. Now Prenatal Vitamins Dha More info

Chlorella

You may see very fine particles (I use medium brown and my face looks dirty close-up if I sprinkle too close to my forehead) on your nose or cheeks. I have shaved for years and always hated the results. Again different beards may get different mileage. "Having to admit to my own dependency and vulnerability actually made me more powerful," he said. Chlorella
(L-Arginine, etc.) I had to stack with my N.O. Although how it exactly works is not completely understood, light is known to be a potent phase-shifting agent of circadian rhythms and acts on melatonin metabolism and secretion. As previously mentioned, sometimes one bean will pop up into the top of the upper burr grinder, so you have to remove it to grind it. It's quick, accurate and efficient. I love the fact that it also moisturizes my nails, which have a tendency to split in dry weather. We purchased the breathable bumper for baby number 2 since she is a roller and like to sleep again the side of the crib. Spirulina. Benefici E Controindicazioni Della Spirulina Learn more

Also good with tortilla

Also good with tortilla chips. I'm not sure what happened with everyone else's cords, but the two 6 feet cables that I ordered work perfectly well still and I've had them for two years now. A call to Breville and they volunteered to send me one for free. She and I are the same age and both had breast cancer at the same time in our lives. here It takes (maybe) 2-3 days instead of overnight but he has completely stopped itching and the redness has gone away! Since these references are not limited to the main chapter that discusses this, but rather peppered throughout the whole book, one can easily surmise that the conclusions she makes are largely the result of her religious upbringing. I would recommend this book to anyone 13 and over as it does mention rape but does not go into gruesome detail. With the proper setting for weight, I had a wide variety of songbirds and woodpeckers at the feeder. I'm 6'5", and I realize that I might be just a bit too tall for certain things, but when I lay on this bench, the edge does not even come to my neck. I gave it 4 stars because the way you install it leaves the corners open so she can still hit her head there, but it hasn't actually been a problem.
