Tell Congress to Support the Real Education for Healthy Youth Act
May is National Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month (NTPPM), an opportunity for parents, schools, policymakers, organizations, and young people across the country to promote and support effective teen pregnancy prevention initiatives.
NTPPM began in 1995, when Barbara Huberman, Director of Education and Outreach at Advocates for Youth, recognized a need for inclusive, coordinated action to reduce unintended teen pregnancy nationwide.
We know that YOU know that ensuring access to comprehensive sexuality education for students is paramount to providing young people with the knowledge, tools, and social support they need to make informed decisions.
That’s why this May we’re asking for your help in asking Members of Congress to support the Real Education for Healthy Youth Act (REHYA), a bill that lays out a comprehensive and inclusive vision for sex education in the United States.
REHYA would make sex education awesome. Awesome sex education connects with young people’s lives and experiences. It doesn’t ignore or stigmatize lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth, or young people who have already had sex. Most of all, it empowers young people to make healthy decisions. We all deserve that kind of sex education; now let’s go make it happen!
Contact your Members of Congress today to either thank or ask them to support the Real Education for Healthy Youth Act.
We can do this!
