This blog post is part of the Sex Ed Road Trip, a blog series uplifting youth activists work from across the country working towards comprehensive sex education. Today’s stop is in Colorado!
“Sexual health is inextricably interrelated with our well-being, our health, and the ability to determine our own futures, so much that ignoring sex ed is doing an injustice to the youths of Colorado. As a young person, I believe that providing a comprehensive, medically-accurate, and inclusive education program should be both a basic human right and necessity.” – Taylor Hayes, C.R.E.A.T.E council member
“Sex ed is important in Colorado because it helps prevent teen dating violence.” – Katie Raitz, C.R.E.A.T.E council member
“Comprehensive sex ed is important for my state because it means that my ethnic and LGBT identities are acknowledged and included.” – Adrian Nava, C.R.E.A.T.E council member
