Proposed Changes to Title IX
In June of 2022, the US Department of Education issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) regarding Title IX. The proposed changes would add clarifying text to include protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity as well as reinstate victim protections removed under previous administrations.
