BRIDGEPORT - Sen. Richard Blumenthal is speaking out about the need to better prevent sexual assaults on college campuses.

He held a discussion yesterday with students and educators at Housatonic Community College in Bridgeport. He says there needs to be a culture change on campuses across the country.

"Campuses can take stronger action not just to counter drugs, alcohol and change the culture, but also to raise awareness, so that people who may be bystanders know they should intervene," said Blumenthal.

The meeting was just one of several that Blumenthal has held. He is part of a task force working to strengthen sexual assault laws.
