We need your HELP!

Help us tell Mississippi’s Governor, Phil Bryant, that abstinence-only-until-marriage programs are NOT good enough by participating in our photo campaign!

  1. Print off the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month sign and write your name, city, and what information you believe young people need and deserve that will help us protect ourselves from unplanned pregnancies and STDs. Click on the sign to download.
  2. Take a picture of yourself with your sign. 
  3. Text or email your photo to the MYCouncil member you know OR email it to MYCouncil’s coordinator, Josh McCawley, at josh@mississippifirst.org.

On March 18, MYCouncil will take all of your photos to the Governor’s office so that he will be able to see how many people want him to recognize the importance of providing better sex education in Mississippi!

Thank you for your help,
