|Support the Real Education for Healthy Youth Act!|
We deserve comprehensive sex education. The kind that recognizes our right to information. The kind that helps us make healthy and responsible decisions about our sexual health.
On November 2, 2011, Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) and Representative Barbara Lee (D-CA) introduced the Real Education for Healthy Youth Act.
This legislation will ensure that federal money is used to provide education that is evidence-based, inclusive and medically accurate – and it will prevent money from being used for dangerous abstinence-only-until-marriage programs.
This isn’t the first time that Representative Lee and Senator Lautenberg have introduced important legislation to provide comprehensive sex education. In order to move forward in Congress, this bill needs your support.
When you write your representative, make sure to share your story. More than facts and figures, your story will persuade members of Congress to do the right thing and co-sponsor this bill. Share with them how abstinence-only education failed you or how comprehensive sex education gave you the tools you needed to make healthy decisions. Tell them why you need this bill to become law.
