Title IX is the most commonly used name for the federal civil rights law in the United States of America that was passed as part (Title IX) of the Education Amendments of 1972. It prohibits sex-based discrimination in any school or any other education program that receives funding from the federal government.
Under Title IX, discrimination on the basis of sex can include sexual harassment or sexual violence, such as rape, sexual assault, sexual battery, and sexual coercion.
Every school that receives federal funding must have a Title IX coordinator. Every school that received federal funding must notify students and employees of the name, title and contact information of the Title IX Coordinator.
If there is no Title IX Coordinator at your school, get in touch with us.
Once you’ve learned about your rights, get in touch with your national congressional representatives and ask them to make school sexual assault prevention a priority. Do the same for your state representatives. Consider mailing a letter or placing a phone call before sending an email; sending letters and placing calls can help your message stand out.
