SAVE: Contact Jeff Sessions now to stop funding for Start By Believing

From SAVE:

An Open Letter denouncing inequitable "victim-centered" practices has garnered more than 150 signatures from criminal attorneys, law professors, and scholars across the country who are concerned about the lack of objectivity and balance being utilized in sexual misconduct investigations.

Many of the victim-centered practices discussed in the Letter have become widely utilized by college administrators, drawing the ire of judges in both state and federal courts. "[I]n a stunning collective judicial rebuke to many campuses' unfair treatment of students accused of sexual misconduct, courts have issued at least 102 rulings against universities since 2011 compared with 88 rulings in their favor." (1)

Victim-centered practices, sometimes referred to as "Start by Believing," are becoming widespread in the criminal justice system, as well.

Take a stand against "victim-centered" practices now and contact Attorney General Jeff Sessions at (202) 353-1555 to stop funding for Start by Believing.

The Open Letter is available at For a list of the 20 editorials published in 2018 critical of the 'believe the victim' approach, visit
