Title IX Under Trump

Title IX Under Trump

On September 7th, 2017, Betsy DeVos began to roll back federal guidance on Title IX. While her comments demonstrated a fundamental misunderstanding of the law and perpetuate myths that harm survivors, your rights remain intact. No matter what Betsy DeVos says, Title IX and the Clery Act are still the law of the land.

  • For #womenshistorymonth we wanted to highlight the woman who changed the lives of so many others, Congresswoman Patsy Mink, the mother of Title IX. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The first woman of color elected to Congress, Patsy Mink changed the course of history for American education – leading the passage of Title IX and the Women’s Educational Equity Act in 1974. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Mink was denied admittance by a dozen medical schools because of her gender. And after earning a law degree, was rejected from firms because she had a daughter. So Mink became a legislator and began changing the very systems that had discriminated against her. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Because of Mink, womens’ enrollment in college has tripled, girls’ participation in high school sports has grown, medicine and law schools enrollment is nearly gender equitable, and schools have to respond to and resolve hostile educational environments created by sexual harassment and violence. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Patsy Mink was a trailblazer who changed the course of history. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #titleix #patsymink #womenshistory #womenhistorymonth2020
  • Schools across the country and keeping survivors in the dark about their #titleix case. We’ve heard from survivors across the country, and almost all said their school has told them nothing about the future of their case or how the can continue to receive their accommodations. This is unacceptable. “I’m not even asking for fluency. I’m asking for competency. I’m asking for them to show up and be transparent with me.” Thank you @lannadelgrey’s for this important article.

  • We know that school can be a safe haven for many who need an escape from abusive and unsafe homes. Our hearts are with the survivors who are feeling the impacts of increased social isolation 💕
  • 27 years ago, abortion provider Dr. David Gunn was murdered during an anti-abortion protect at his clinic in Florida. This was the first murder of an abortion provider in the U.S. 
Since 1993 nine more people have been murdered by antis. 
Today, we #CelebrateAbortionProviders through Abortion Provider Appreciation Day and honor those we have lost.

  • *APPLY THROUGH THE LINK IN OUR BIO* Join us March 20th-22nd in New Orleans for our intensive 3-day training that brings together student activists from the same region to build skills, share strategies, and create community -- so the movements to end gender violence on campus and to ensure access to abortion care and sexual health-care for ALL, and the young people who are leading these movements, can continue to grow stronger.

During this intensive weekend, Know Your IX and AFY’s Louisiana Youth Organizing Fellows (with the New Orleans Abortion Fund and Lift Louisiana) will lead an advanced organizing training with two tracks; abortion/sexual health care access for young people and gender-based violence on campus. In order to build mass movements, it is critical to organize across issue, and this training will work to connect the dots between our respective movements.
  • ‪We’re joining organizer at #SCOTUS where they are hearing arguments on the Louisiana ban. This is the first major abortion case to come before Kavanaugh. ‬

We’re here because we refuse to let abusers take away survivors’ rights. #myrightmydecision
  • Today, the Department of ED launched a “new initiative” to enforce Title IX in K-12 schools. Just so we are clear, it is literally the Department’s job to enforce Title IX, not a new initiative.
  • Thank you @miatilli, @lily.francess, and @paris_lalonde_ for sharing this amazing art with us. 💕
