100 School Districts: A Call to Action for School Districts Across the Country to Address Sexual Harassment Through Inclusive Policies and Practices

"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. If you are a student, educator, or community member who wants to learn more about how to make schools safer for students, this resource is for you. Together, we can create a better world for all students."
