Federal Legislation

The Tyler Clementi Higher Education Anti-Harassment Act of 2023 is the Foundation’s key piece of federal legislation in the wake of Tyler’s tragic suicide. The proposed law would require colleges and universities that receive federal aid to establish an anti-harassment policy prohibiting the harassment of enrolled students based on their actual or perceived race, color, national origin, sex, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or religion. The act, which recognizes cyberbullying as including harassment through electronic messaging services, commercial mobile services, and other electronic communications, would also establish a competitive grant program to support campus anti-harassment programs including prevention, counseling, and training for students, faculty, and staff.

The Tyler Clementi Higher Education Anti-Harrassment Act of 2023 is sponsored by Senator and President Pro Tempore Patty Murray (D-WA), Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), and Congressman Mark Pocan (D-WI). It was introduced in Congress on September 21, 2023 under S-2902 and HR-5685.
