The-Power-of-IXDid you know that it’s your right to feel safe at school?

Title IX is an important law that requires schools to make sure students never lose out on the chance to learn because of their gender. That means schools must protect students from what’s called “sexual harassment,” which includes sex-based bullying and violence, and must treat students equally, regardless of their gender.

Yet, all too often, ERA hears from students who say they’ve been groped, leered at, stalked, bullied, and even assaulted based on their sex, but don’t know that they have a right to complain about these things – confidentially – and the right to learn in an environment free of fear and discrimination.

The truth is: you DO have the right. Learn about the Power of Title IX.
