Get Updates on the Title IX Rulemaking Process

On September 22, Betsy DeVos rescinded Obama-era guidance and announced that the Department of Education would be issuing binding regulations on Title IX. In order to create these regulations, the Department must go through a process known as “notice and comment,” which allows members of the public to voice their opinions on the Department’s proposed rules. The Department of Education has announced that notice and comment will begin in March.

We highly encourage students, their families, and allies to participate in notice and comment. If you are interested in receiving updates when notice and comment begins, please sign up for updates. Know Your IX will provide you with a toolkit to help you navigate the process of writing a comment.

  • The fight against sexual violence in schools has ignored the stories and experiences of survivors. Which is why we teamed up with artist Katie Watson to refocus the survivors who carry the weight of sexual violence with them every day.

We're centering the survivors who are constantly left out of the conversation around sexual violence--despite facing disproportionate rates of sexual violence and lasting impacts. 
We hope to remind folks that despite everything, survivors rarely get the justice they deserve or the safety they need.

Schools often value the education of perpetrators over survivors'-- despite what the Trump Administration would have you believe. Already, about 1/3 of survivors are forced out of college. 
Join us and take action through art. This administration is doing everything in its power to ignore survivors -- don't let them. Link in bio.
