This petition is to support bill HF 1204/SF 1483. This bill will create a statewide Title IX coordinator to provide comprehensive training and education on all aspects of Title IX. High schools across Minnesota don’t have someone fighting for the students who need it most. Our Title IX coordinators are often our assistant superintendents or athletic directors and are unable to adequately fulfill their duties considering the lack of training Minnesota provides them. Children who are sexually harassed and assaulted already feel alone and afraid; they should not need to struggle to get support. Bill HF 1204/SF 1483 is essential to provide that support.

We are very hopeful for this upcoming legislative session. Our main goal is to ultimately make an impact on the state of Minnesota and advocate for girls and boys who are facing sexual harassment and assault every day. With your support, we can grow leaps and bounds in helping the next generation feel safer and supported. We appreciate the bi-partisan support we have gotten in the past, but we hope it is more than words. If Bill HF 1204/SF 1483 isn’t actually implemented, students will continue to suffer.

We don’t know the number of students who have been sexually harassed or assaulted, but we know it is likely in the thousands. We don’t want it to be thousands more. We can do more for the children of Minnesota. Funding Bill HF 1204/SF 1483 would only require a tiny sliver of the state education budget. Aren’t the students in Minnesota worth it? Please help us in this legislative session by signing this petition and reaching out to your local representatives and senators. Think of the thousands of students whose voices you may not hear but who are screaming for your attention.
