Hochul to Address Sexual Assault Prevention Law at Daemen

Hochul to Address Sexual Assault Prevention Law at Daemen

Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul will address New York State’s “Enough is Enough” sexual assault prevention law and learn the latest in Daemen College’s comprehensive efforts at a meeting with the campus community at 3:30 p.m. Jan. 27 in the Wick Campus Center Alumni Lounge.

The discussion follows Hochul’s visit last year to talk about the proposed sexual assault policy legislation at a roundtable meeting with Daemen students, faculty and staff. Since being signed into law by Gov. Andrew Cuomo in July, Hochul has been conducting a tour of colleges and universities across the state to discuss the new policy.

“Enough is Enough, championed by Gov. Cuomo, is the nation's most aggressive policy to fight against sexual assault on college campuses,” said Hochul. “I look forward to hearing more about Daemen’s proactive initiatives that support this policy.”
