Join the fight to
reform Title IX

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 told the Department of Education:
We support the new Title IX guidelines that put students and survivors first.


End Rape On Campus believes sexual harassment can look different when it is aimed at these intersecting identities, and the proposed Title IX rule must be explicitly inclusive of all protected identities.

It’s On Us is calling for an updated Title IX guidelines that prioritize the protection of students and survivors, holds institutions accountable for preventing sexual violence, and ensures students who are sexually assaulted can continue their education. 

Celebrating 50 years of Title IX

Title IX
“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
Title IX is passed into law, prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sex in any educational institution — K–12 or higher ed — that receives federal funding.
