Tyler Clementi’s parents were in Washington Thrusday to make a push for anti-bullying and harassment legislation in their son’s honor.

Clementi was the Rutgers student who committed suicide after his roommate streamed a sexual encounter between Clementi and another man online.

The legislation would force colleges and universities to have clear anti-harassment policies in place.

It would also provide money to expand bullying and harassment prevention programs.
