"Know My Name" book by Chanel Miller

The Office of Title IX has partnered with the President's Book Club to discuss Know My Name by Chanel Miller during Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM).

Miller was known to the world as Emily Doe when she stunned millions with a letter. Brock Turner had been sentenced to just six months in county jail after he was found sexually assaulting her on Stanford's campus. Her victim impact statement was posted on BuzzFeed, where it instantly went viral--viewed by eleven million people within four days, it was translated globally and read on the floor of Congress; it inspired changes in California law and the recall of the judge in the case. Thousands wrote to say that she had given them the courage to share their own experiences of assault for the first time.
