Title IX is a civil rights law that requires schools to keep their students safe. But if your school, like so many others, is flouting this federal law, it may take a movement to hold administrators accountable—and to ensure that all students can access education free from discrimination. Follow these steps to form a group, build power, and fight to improve your school’s policies, practices, resources, and prevention strategies. While this guide explains how students at other schools have organized, nothing here is set in stone: adapt it in ways that suit your campus community and its unique needs.

This resource is part of our Campus Organizing Toolkit. Whether your campus needs policy and judicial process reform, has a lack of crisis response and counseling services, or needs greater prevention education, the Campus Organizing Toolkit will walk you through legal requirements and organizing strategies needed to plan an effective campaign.
