We are a Pan-Canadian group of sexual assault centers that have come together to implement the legal, social and attitudinal changes necessary to prevent, and ultimately eradicate, rape and sexual assault. As feminists we recognize that violence against women is one of the strongest indicators of prevailing societal attitudes against women. The intent of the Canadian Association is to act as a force for social change regarding violence against women at the individual, the institutional and the political level.
Know Your IX is a national survivor-run, student-driven campaign to end campus sexual violence. Running on grassroots energy, we educate students across the country about their civil right to education free from sexual violence and harassment while also pushing policy and legislative changes on the national level for better federal enforcement of that same right. We work to educate our fellow students about their rights and empower them to take action for safety and equality on campus.

Stop Street Harassment (SSH) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to documenting and ending gender-based street harassment worldwide. Because street harassment is often an invisible problem (especially to people in power) and it is dismissed as being a “minor annoyance,” a “joke,” or the fault of the harassed person, our primarily focus right now is simply to document the problem and demonstrate why it’s a human rights violation that must be addressed.
