REDEFINE TITLE IX AT BVSD
Holding Institutions to a Higher Standard
Redefine Title IX wants to hold BVSD to its promise of equity. We believe that a strong Title IX policy is the foundation for effective sexual violence prevention programs to be built on. Through advocacy and awareness around the fundamental pieces of Title IX and what is missing from BVSD's policy, we hope to create a safer environment for survivors by making a more practical, efficient, and less burdensome policy.
"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, The Education Amendments of 1972
Our organization is entirely funded with our own money. For resources, website costs, and awareness we need donations to keep our platform going and the movement growing. For the same price as a cup of coffee, you can help survivors reach the resources they need.
Redefine Title IX at BVSD was started by Sophie Dellinger and Beatriz Sanchez. As members of the Fairview High School Class of 2020, we witnessed firsthand the damage of not having a comprehensive Title IX policy and sexual violence prevention program. We have spent months doing research on Title IX policy both in past administration's legislation and the current administration. Our goal is to spread our knowledge and hold the district accountable for their gaps in Title IX.
