I am so happy to announce that Sexual Harassment: Not in Our School! is now available. I invite you to preview the free video and related materials at ssais.org/video and to share this game-changing resource with everyone you know. You can locate specific content using the Video Contents link at ssais.org/video. You may also click on the image below to go directly to the video.
The timing of this release is perfect. Earlier this year, the Washington Post reported on the prevalence of K-12 sexual violence and how Stop Sexual Assault in Schools (SSAIS.org) is addressing it. This summer, SSAIS received a grant to create a groundbreaking presentation that informs K-12 families about sex discrimination, sexual harassment, protections under Title IX, and more. Given the changes at the US Dept. of Education, the time to disseminate this information couldn’t be better, and you can help.
Want to host a free screening of Sexual Harassment: Not in Our School! at your school or organization? We’d love for you to! Visit the SSAIS website to learn more or contact SSAIS for additional information.
