New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has teamed up with Lady Gaga to write an op-ed in Billboard pushing for legislation to combat sexual assault on college campuses.
“We all have a responsibility to make sure that the strongest possible laws are in place to safeguard our students,” the pair wrote. “Thankfully, New York has an opportunity to stand up for its students and take the critical steps toward facing this crisis head on. The bill currently before the New York State legislature will address the issue of sexual violence on college campuses, giving the state the nation’s strongest laws to target campus sexual assault. This is a campaign that will protect students, and it’s exactly what we need.”
Cuomo introduced legislation in February, and launched the Enough Is Enough campaign.
