Wow. Your Monday-must is to check out this photo campaign highlighting the faces and voices of black students at Harvard College.
Analysis: Today’s meeting of the negotiated rulemaking committee on the VAWA amendments to the Clery Act was a bit rocky – the negotiators covered some of the more detailed parts of the draft rule (prevention programs, training, disciplinary proceedings) and opinions in the room varied.
The main takeaways:
I’ll leave you with the positive note the Department tried to end the day on: days 3 and 4 tend to be the hardest in a negotiated rulemaking since so many details are being worked out, but there’s reason to be optimistic the group can reach consensus. The negotiators were encouraged to talk over the next month and think of compromise ways to move forward. Likewise, those following along can reach out to negotiators if there are suggestions for ways to solve some of the problems vocalized.
We’ll be back on March 31 and April 1 for the final days of negotiation!

Analysis: Day 3 the of the negotiated rulemaking around the Violence Against Women Act amendments to the Clery Act (also known as Campus SaVE) proceeded a bit differently from the first two days – negotiators had a draft rule to work from, and consensus-building was clearly on their minds.

We just had to share this #regram from @seejanewin. Shout out to all the women learning to run for office this weekend. #electher
Just a few moments ago, President Obama said that when women succeed, America succeeds. Tell the president you agree and ask him to take the next step for fair pay —>http://bit.ly/16EjDke
Let the bingo begin. #sotu #aauwsotu
This is just one of many reasons why we think President Obama should talk about fair pay in the State of the Union speech tonight.
Here’s how we can hold the president accountable —> http://bit.ly/1ak7HUD
Don’t mind us. We’re just hanging out with Lilly Ledbetter… #regram from @lizowens
Amazingly, no one at MSNBC has ever said anything to me about my hair. Not one word. But the audience has a lot to say. I can’t go on air without letters and comments and tweets and emails from viewers. Everything from “Where do you get your hair done?” and “I love your hair” to “Why would you show up looking like that on air?” It comes from white folks and black folks. It would be impossible to go through the amount of responses the first year on air caused about my hair. — Over at Slate, Melissa Harris-Perry remembers every single hairdo she’s ever had.
It’s been 5 years since President Obama took the first step on fair pay. Now is the time for the next step. Take action to help make it happen —> http://bit.ly/16EjDke
