The Firecracker Foundation provides K-12 students and families with a trained advocate that can work with them and utilize non-litigation strategies to respond to sexual harassment and gender-based violence that they are experiencing on campus.
Advocates educate families about Title IX, attend meetings to support their process, and offer additional resources as needed.
Call the Title IX Hotline! 517-742-7224 ext. 2
Students, guardian(s), and staff can call our Title IX Hotline to ask questions, seek guidance, and be connected with an advocate. A Firecracker Title IX Advocate will respond within 24-48 hrs.
The Title IX advocate’s responsibility is to work collaboratively with area schools and their Title IX Coordinators to protect and advocate for survivors of sexual violence and gender-based violence. If need be, advocates will assist students and families in filing Title IX complaints to the proper authorities, attend meetings with families at their schools and connect them to invaluable community resources and services to address the aftermath of sexual and gender-based violence. If warranted, advocates will also refer families to further legal assistance.
