It’s On Us and End Rape On Campus are working to prevent campus sexual assault and support survivors in making their voices heard. The Biden Administration recently proposed new Title IX guidelines that restore protections for student survivors of sexual assault.

We support the new Title IX guidelines that put students and survivors first.
