SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) October 16, 2017
The National Coalition For Men (NCFM) thanks California Governor Jerry Brown for doing the ethical thing by vetoing Senate Bill 169, which would have codified the bad policies set forth in the 2011 “Dear Colleague“ letter issued by former President Obama and further eroded the due process rights of college students.
NCFM works with falsely accused students who have been denied the most basic due process rights under the 2011 Dear Colleague letter, including the right to present exculpatory evidence, to cross examine the accuser, and to have a fair and impartial tribunal.
Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos recently rescinded the 2011 Dear Colleague letter and sent a new Dear Colleague letter requiring fairness and due process.
Senate Bill 169 was an attempt to circumvent DeVos’ letter and codify the 2011 dear colleague letter into California state slaw.
NCFM is pleased that Governor Brown took his time to research the issue carefully rather than make a knee-jerk partisan-based decision. Due process matters.
Governor Brown recognized in his veto message that denying someone a college education should not be taken lightly.
NCFM is thankful for the results will continue to fight for the rights of the falsely accused.
Since 1977 NCFM has been committed to ending discrimination against boys, men, their families and the women who love them. NCFM is a gender inclusive 501(c)(3) tax exempt corporation .
