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.

IX-CAN is a space FOR students BY students to talk about organizing strategies, policy ideas, and critical legislation to end gender-based violence and discrimination in schools. Student survivors and activists from all across the nation are coming together to collaborate, share resources, and build a more unified national movement to end sexual and domestic violence on campus and beyond! Here are some ways to use the group: Ask what prevention ed programs work well, ask people to sign and share your petition, share an event you have coming up and ask folks to attend, find info about certain laws, organizations, etc. 
KYIX members will also use this group to share national campaigns, monthly training opportunities, press opportunities, and provide continued support to student organizers. IX-CAN members will also be given priority placements for our IX-Action regional trainings. We’re using our collective reach and visibility to support each other and lift up the work students are leading on the ground -- especially that of students whose voices are too often erased and silenced.

  • Don't cross the picket lines. Amazon prioritizes fast distribution of goods over the health of employees.

Thinking about crossing? Remember Amazon workers experience years of injuries that lead to disabilities–OSHA reported 41 severe injuries resulting in hospitalization, including six amputations and 15 fractures. Labor rights are survivors rights. Don’t cross the line.
  • Girls’ educations should not be restricted because of gender violence and discrimination. That’s why it’s important for all students to know their Title IX rights. Learn more at knowyourix.org/high-school-resource .

  • Too often high school students are pushed out of school because of discrimination. We all deserve to learn free from restrictions. If you agree, tell us why #ineedix.

  • If you’re looking for a summer beach read check out The Feminist Utopia Project. It’s an amazing collection of feminist visions for the future. Best part, it’s co-edited by our own Alexandra Brodsky.
  • Title IX is the floor, but our demands should aim for the sky. We can envision and actualize a world that is more fair and just. A world where no survivor is pushed out of school because of the violence they experienced. A world where equity is real. Don’t forget to dream big.
  • A five month pregnant woman was shot in the stomach—then arrested for the loss of her fetus following the shooting. This is disgusting, victim blaming, and racist.  Marshae Jones should be free.
  • 🎉Happy Birthday #TitleIX. For her birthday, she wants you to know your rights! 🎂
  • These episodes are hard to watch. Take care of yourself and each other. Don’t hesitate to reach out for help if you’re feeling triggered. .
