Save our Sons and Oppose CASA (S.590)

The National Coalition for Men (NCFM) Carolinas chapter caught wind of a new development regarding the Campus Accountability and Safety Act (CASA; S.590 / H.R. 1310), federal legislation that endangers the rights of male students: Panelists are assembling to discuss the future of your sons starting this Wednesday, July 29th at 9 AM EST.

NCFM has ten excellent reasons to oppose CASA, but those reasons have no teeth unless you voice them to your representatives, some of which are attending. This meeting is not being broadcast to the public, so there is no better time to remind the people who govern our lives that we are on to them.

You can find a list of panelists at the bottom of this article. Those of you who are aware of the debate on due process rights might recognize some of these names, and recall that they are not interested in protections for the accused.

If you want to promote due process and a functional judicial system, call the members of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) committee this Tuesday, between 9 AM and 4:30 PM EST and tell them to oppose CASA (S.590). You do not need to call everyone on this list, just focus on the ones for your state so that you approach the situation as a constituent.

Do not let the Bystander Effect win. It is up to you to stand up for the principle of “innocent until proven guilty.” If you do not make the call, it will be easier for CASA to put your son at risk of expulsion and conviction based solely on hearsay. Do not stay silent. If you want change, then flood the lines, and do not back down.

Remember, contact the record for your state this TUESDAY, JULY 28th during EST business hours and tell them to oppose CASA (S.590).
