Step Up, Speak Out is a project of the Nebraska Domestic Violence Sexual Assault Coalition. Providing teens with clear and accurate information on all forms of violence—including sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, and gender violence—can lead to a reduction of this violence.  These materials, in isolation, are not enough to end all forms of violence.  However, when used in conjunction with a community effort, violence can be eradicated.

Founded in 2013, Know Your IX is a national survivor-run, student-driven campaign to end campus sexual violence.  Running on grassroots energy, we educate students across the country about their civil right to education free from sexual violence and harassment while also pushing policy and legislative change on the national level for better federal enforcement of that same right.  Know Your IX fills the gap between the law on the books and survivors on the ground: we work to educate our fellow students about their rights and empower them to take action for safety and equality on campus; and bring students’ voices, experiences, and concerns to policymakers writing the next chapter in Title IX’s history.
