Know Your IX team building!
Know Your IX
is a campaign founded and led by student survivors and allies to educate students about Title IX, which mandates that universities that receive federal funding proactively create a campus free of sexual discrimination/violence. Our organizers have contributed to various sections of the website. KYIX is looking for anti-violence activists to be part of this team.
The media coverage of sexual assault on college campuses in the past year has been very white washed, even though sexual violence continues to haunt the lives of those who are not wealthy heterosexual white women who did everything “right.” To counter the media erasure of the “more difficult narratives” (read: not white, not woman, not straight), KYIX is encouraging:
We particularly encourage people from historically marginalized groups, including but not limited to people with disabilities, people of color, trans people, queer people, first- or second-generation immigrants (including undocumented people), and people from low income families. We also encourage students from types of schools often overlooked in discussions of campus violence, and survivors of forms of sexual and gender-based violence commonly ignored by anti-violence efforts (relationship abuse, same-sex violence, etc.) to apply. KYIX is a student-driven campaign, so we will prioritize applications from those currently or recently enrolled as students and those directly impacted by campus violence.

KNOW YOUR IX!!!
We are so excited for the launch of Know Your IX!
Know Your IX is a campaign that aims to educate all college students in the U.S. about their rights under Title IX. Armed with information, sexual violence survivors will be able to advocate for themselves during their schools’ grievance proceedings and, if Title IX guarantees are not respected, file a complaint against their colleges with the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights.
This campaign was built by a large collective of survivor-activists and allies seeking to share the expertise of their first-hand experience with violence, the law, and activism. On this site you’ll find resources on Title IX and the Clery Act, guidance on engaging in campus activism, hotlines for emergency care, suggestions for supporting a survivor, and personal advice in our “Dealing with…” section.

Know Your IX is a campaign that aims to educate every college student in the U.S. about his or her rights under Title IX by the start of the Fall 2013 academic term. Armed with information, survivors will be able to advocate for themselves during their schools’ grievance proceedings and, if Title IX guarantees are not respected, to file a complaint against their colleges with the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights. When colleges are confronted with their students’ knowledge and thirst for justice, they will be forced to take proactive steps to end sexual violence, ensuring every student a safe educational environment.
