The purpose of this article is to examine the utility of political intersectionality as a survivor strategy for children experiencing sexual violence in public K-12 schools. Collective resistance strategies against systemic oppression is the action arm of an intersectional framework for women and girls at the margins (Crenshaw 2000). This work centers the activism of a Black girl collective called Rise Up (pseudonym) as the basis for thinking about political intersectionality as a survivor strategy for child survivors in K-12 schools. The implications of this work calls attention to gendered-based sexual violence happening in public schools in the United States and provides suggestions for remedies.
