Thanks for getting in touch.

Title IX is a federal civil rights law that ensures protections against discrimination on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression in education programs or institutions that receive federal, taxpayer money, including at many religious schools and colleges.

Hunter v. Department of Education

More than 40 courageous plaintiffs are sharing their stories of facing anti-LGBTQ discrimination and abuse at taxpayer-funded religiously affiliated schools, colleges and universities, in this lawsuit challenging the religious exemption from Title IX.

But we know that these 40+ stories are just a small sample of the many instances of anti-LGBTQ abuse, harassment, and discrimination at the thousands of religious schools, colleges and universities that explicitly discriminate against LGBTQ people. Learn more about the lawsuit.
