New Resource on How to File a Title IX Complaint

SSAIS collaborated with Dr. Bill Howe to create the guide How to File a Title IX Complaint in K-12 Schools: A Guide for Parents and Guardians. It’s for those wanting to file a complaint regarding sexual harassment, sexual violence, sex discrimination, and other violations of state and federal civil rights laws regarding gender discrimination.

Ending K-12 Sexual Harassment: A Toolkit for Parents and Allies

Dear Gender Equity Advocates and Friends of SSAIS,

Today we’re releasing the new  free resource “Ending K-12 Sexual Harassment: A Toolkit for Parents and Allies.”  It includes a new PSA with adults talking about the impact of sexual harassment on K-12 students. It draws on experts’ clips from Sexual Harassment: Not in Our School! and lists the procedures parents/allies can take to protect students. There’s also a new Title IX checklist, links to fact sheets, information for girls of color (referencing NWLC, Girls for Gender Equity, Alliance for Girls websites), and fact sheets for LGBTQ students.  The toolkit also addresses sexual harassment in private schools and educator abuse (with links to SESAME and TAALK).

It’s imperative that we get this material into the hands of parents and students’ allies.  You’re welcome to embed the PSA on your websites–preferably by linking to the YouTube so we can track views.  Please include a link to the toolkit too.

Watch the PSA  https://bit.ly/2HUGfI4

The new toolkit encourages the public to protect students before it’s too late.  We’d appreciate your help disseminating this information!

Best,

esther

Invitation to join list serve devoted to K-12 sexual harassment

Gender equity advocates,

Each day we see new initiatives to erode students’ civil rights. One way SSAIS is fighting back is by forming a coalition of K-12 activists and advocates to amplify each other’s voice. The purpose of the new listserve is to share our activism, to discuss strategies, and promote each other’s efforts–to create a synergistic effect!  

Please consider joining the  Coalition Against Sexual Harassment (CASHK12) listserve  https://stop-sexual-assault-in-schools.mobilize.io/registrations/groups/15941 and/or forward this invitation to like-minded allies.

“. . . if we do not bring a serious focus to the problem of sexual harassment and assault in elementary and secondary schools, it will be nearly impossible to make real progress at any other level of education. Too often the story of sexual violence in K-12 schools shows administrators who are poorly informed about their Title IX obligations or avoid taking the necessary steps required by Title IX to end and prevent future harassment.”–Fatima Goss Graves, President and CEO National Women’s Law Center,  inaugural blog for SSAIS 9/15.

Many thanks,

esther
