Description

Title IX protections have provided a much-needed resource for addressing sexual violence on campus. However, the benefits of Title IX may not apply equally to all students in practice. This workshop will explore strategies for addressing sexual violence in lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and queer (LGBTQ+) communities. How can we improve support for LGBTQ+ students? How effectively does Title IX address same-sex violence – and might this shift under the current administration? What other policy and programmatic options would support students in these communities? Workshop participants will discuss and strategize around these and other contemporary challenges for supporting LGBTQ+ survivors on campus.
