Media coverage is a critical tool in a student activist’s playbook. One powerful way to secure coverage is through publishing an opinion piece (known as an “op-ed”) in your local paper. These pieces typically run from 500 to 700 words and can help get your message out, spur cultural change, and put pressure on the government or your college’s administration.
We encourage survivors and others to work with us to publish op-eds that help educate your community about Title IX. Thus far, Know Your IX has helped students place pieces in publications such as Vox, Vice, The Chicago Tribune, The New York Daily News, The Baltimore Sun, The Tampa Bay Times, The Indianapolis Star, and The Forward.
If you would be interested in working with Know Your IX on a piece, please fill out this form. Our team will be in contact with you about next steps. Please note that due to limited capacity, we may not be able to work with every person interested in publishing an op-ed.
