Support Know Your IX

Support Know Your IX

Know Your IX has been selected again this year to be a part of the NO MORE Challenge, a fundraising campaign that benefits organizations focused on ending sexual and dating violence.

If Know Your IX raises the most money, we’ll keep what we raise AND receive an additional $40K (or $20k for second place, and so on). With that $40K, we could host eight activist bootcamps, bringing together hundreds of student activists from all over the country to learn how to organize.

In response to coverage of university mistreatment of sexual assault survivors, many observers have wondered why schools handle these crimes at all: why not just leave it to the police?

Under Title IX, schools are legally required to respond and remedy hostile educational environments and failure to do so is a violation that means a school could risk losing its federal funding.
  • This is simple: mandatory police referral bills are harmful to survivors. #StudentsAgainstHB51 #StopHB51
  • One of the most important reasons our Executive Director, Mahroh, joined this movement is to "build a future where my siblings can go to school free from the violence that forced me and my friends to drop out."
As Mahroh writes, even if we can't end violence before our little ones get to school, help [us] make sure that they will know their rights and be able to fight for them.  Support our work today! *Link in bio*
  • We are so excited to present our newly redesigned website! It’s filled with accessible resources on everything from the basics of your rights under Title IX to our campus organizing toolkit, to survivor self-care, and much more. 
Let’s keep fighting for our right to an education free from violence and harassment. Check out our new site here: www.knowyourix.org

  • If you call GEORGIA home, now its the time to act: Find your Senators number here: bit.ly/StopHB51, and call them using the below script to #StopHB51. ------------------------------------
Hi, my name is [insert name] and I am from [District/City]. I am calling because I care about Title IX’s protection of students’ rights to go to school in a safe environment, free from discrimination and violence. I oppose Georgia House Bill 51 and I urge [insert Representative] to stand with survivors by voting NO on this dangerous bill. H.B. 51 would steal victims’ control over their own sexual assault cases—and create a chilling effect on campus reporting. This means thousands of survivors will be unable to come forward to seek the resources they need to stay in school and perpetrators will avoid any accountability. [If you have any additional comments, you can add them here]. Thank you.
  • S/O to Black Women’s Blueprint, CUP, and students from Medgar Evers College, CUNY for creating this beautiful guide to Title IX and the Clery Act.
