Nancy Pelosi Joins Cuomo’s Enough Is Enough Campaign [VIDEO]
Governor Andrew Cuomo's proposed legislation would require all colleges and universities in New York to implement uniform sexual assault prevention and response protocols.
Cuomo says the policy will solidify New York’s role as a national leader in the fight against on-campus sexual violence and better protect the state's 1.2 million college students.
“Too many women are sexually assaulted while in college and our country is facing an all-hands-on-deck epidemic," said House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. "My home state of California was the first to proudly adopt 'yes-means-yes' legislation, and Governor Cuomo's proposal takes an even stronger step for New York with bold action to help protect all college students from sexual assault. I was proud to join Governor Cuomo and Lieutenant Governor Hochul to say: enough is enough."
Since the governor launched the campaign in February, a number of public officials, organizations and community groups have pledged their support.
