Schools are often the first places where people experience sexual harassment. But few students report it, and those who come forward are often ignored, disbelieved, or even punished by their schools. The 100 School Districts project is based on the principle that schools can be sites of transformative change when responding to and preventing sexual harassment. Read our report and student toolkit to learn about 12 comprehensive, intersectional, survivor-centered, and non-punitive policies that schools can adopt to better address sexual harassment. Together, we can create a better world for all students.
Partner with us! If you are a student, parent, educator, or advocate who would like to partner with us to end sexual harassment in your school district, please get in touch with us by filling out this interest form.
