Know Your IX is a survivor- and youth-led group that empowers students to end gender violence in their schools. We envision a world in which all students can pursue their civil right to educations free from violence and harassment. We draw upon the civil rights law Title IX as an alternative to the criminal legal system — one that is more just and responsive to the educational, emotional, financial, and stigmatic harms of violence.
Before applying, please review our values: www.knowyourix.org/our-values
Our organizers work to:
– Educate college and high school students in the United States about their legal rights to safe educations free from gender-based harms;
– Train, organize, and support student survivor activists in challenging their educational institutions to address violence and discrimination;
– Advocating for policy change at the campus, state, and federal levels to ensure meaningful systemic action to end gender violence.
We are looking rad, young activists (ages 15-24) to join each of Know Your IX’s teams—Communications, Policy and Advocacy, Student Engagement—for the 2020-2021 year! This is an exciting volunteer opportunity for a young organizer to train young people about their rights, build and mobilize our student IX Campus Action Network in federal and state level advocacy efforts, and ensure that student and survivor voices are at the center of media conversations relating to campus sexual violence.
DEADLINE TO APPLY: Wednesday, July 1st, 2020 at 11:59 pm EST.
