Various organizations have teamed up to make October 2009 Sex Ed Month of Action, that is, an entire month of advocacy and organizing for comprehensive sex education. Today activists are joining together to tell Congress to get rid of abstinence-only programs that don't work and fund comprehensive sexuality education instead.
We just wanted to let everyone out there know about this campaign and how you can all join in the fight! Participate in the call-in, sign a petition for the Real Act (to authorize funding for comprehensive sex ed) or get involved with some of the groups behind today's event:
- Advocates for Youth
- Catholics for Choice
- Choice USA
- Law Students for Reproductive Justice
- Planned Parenthood
- Sierra Club
- Spiritual Youth for Reproductive Freedom
