Panel: Enough! How to Combat Sexual and Gender-Based Violence in Education
While the federal Educational Amendment known as Title IX requires schools to respond to allegations of sexual violence, many institutions are failing to meet their obligations under the law. Survivors of color, as well as queer and trans students, are the most vulnerable to being pushed out of school when administrations don’t have equitable practices in place to address campus sexual and gender-based violence. At this session, learn more about sexual and gender-based violence in education: what it looks like, who it affects, and how to combat it, especially in California. Together, we can promote equal access to education for people of all genders. While this conversation will focus on higher education, aspects will also touch on K-12 education. By the time the session ends, participants will know how they can help, be allies, or get help themselves with the resources available.
