The national anthem for today’s Title IX commemorative stamp ceremony will be performed by Clarksburg High School Senior Jeanne Lubikae.
The first-day ceremony by the United States Department of Education for its four Title IX commemorative forever stamps will take place at 11am this morning at the U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Ave., Washington, D.C.
The United States Postal Service will issue four forever commemorative stamps in recognition of the 50th anniversary of Title IX, the landmark 1972 civil rights law that forbids discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs that receive federal funding.
Title IX states: “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
According to the Office of Civil Rights of the U.S. Department of Education, Title IX recipients “include
approximately 17,600 local school districts, over 5,000 postsecondary institutions, and charter schools, for-profit schools, libraries, and museums. Also included are vocational rehabilitation agencies and education agencies of 50 states, the District of Columbia, and territories of the United States.”
