Know Your IX: May’s Discovery Lab Beta Workshop
We couldn’t be happier to announce that this month’s Discovery Lab Beta Workshop will be with Know Your IX.
Founded in 2013, Know Your IX is a survivor- and youth-led organization that aims to empower students to end sexual and dating violence in their schools. They envision a world in which all students can pursue their civil right to educations free from violence and harassment. Know Your IX recognizes that gender violence is both a cause of inequity and a consequence of it, and they aim to end that violence to bring equality in education and opportunity to women, transgender, and gender non-conforming students. Know Your IX draws 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.
We’re big fans of Know Your IX’s work, and we’re thrilled to have the chance to help them nail down the scope of their upcoming website redesign. You can learn more about Know Your IX and their programs by checking out their website or connecting with them on Facebook and Twitter.
