Dingell Statement on Resolution Mandating Sexual Harassment Training on Capitol Hill
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (MI-12) released the following statement after the House of Representatives approved a resolution requiring all employees of the House – including Members, interns, detailees, and fellows – to complete an anti-harassment and anti-discrimination training program during each session of Congress.
“Today’s resolution is a first step in changing the culture on Capitol Hill, but we must go further. We also need to pass legislation introduced by Congresswoman Jackie Speier to bring accountability and transparency to the way sexual harassment claims are handled in Congress and ensure taxpayer dollars are never used to cover up unacceptable behavior. Everyone deserves to work in an environment that is free from harassment and hostility. If we are going to improve workplaces across this country, Congress must set the standard.”
