From our recent WASHINGTON UPDATE (04.07.2022)
“In the 49 years since its enactment, Title IX has opened doors for girls and women from classrooms to playing fields. But despite tremendous progress, challenges to equity in education still exist. That’s why the Patsy T. Mink and Louise M. Slaughter Gender Equity in Education Act (GEEA) of 2021 was reintroduced, to ensure schools and educational institutions have the resources they need to comply with this landmark civil rights law.
While the U.S. Department of Education is currently working to strengthen Title IX rules and regulations, passing GEEA would codify protections designed to help students address sex discrimination in all areas of education. It would:
- Provide additional resources, training and technical assistance to educational entities in order to ensure compliance with Title IX.
- Establish an Office of Gender Equity in the U.S. Department of Education to coordinate activities within the Department and among other federal agencies.
- Support the work of thousands of Title IX coordinators by providing annual training and technical assistance.
- Authorize competitive grants to K-12 schools, colleges, local educational agencies, or states to support their gender equity work.
Sex discrimination has no place in our schools. Urge your members of Congress to stand up for equity in education by cosponsoring GEEA. Use the Two-Minute Activist to send emails and texts to your legislators.
