    Visualize the impact of sexual assault and add your mark.

    Know of a case of sexual assault that isn’t reflected on the map? Tell us about it by filling out the reporting form.

    Know your rights.

    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.

    Speak out

    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.

    Celebrate Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

    • History: In 2009, President Obama officially designated April as Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). The goal is to raise awareness about and prevent sexual assault, harassment, and abuse.  
    • Wear teal: The teal ribbon is the symbol for sexual assualt awareness. 
    • Call for action: The first Tuesday of April is SAAM Day of Action, a day that reminds us that prevention requires action. 
    • Rock your denim: Denim Day takes place on the last Wednesday of SAAM. This day of action and awareness is an event in which people are encouraged to wear denim to combat victim blaming and educate others about sexual violence.
