We’re so glad to hear you want to speak up for sexuality & relationships education! Better public sex education will help us raise a new generation of Americans who are secure in their own boundaries, respect the basic humanity of their peers, know all the essential facts about how bodies work, and are fully prepared to have stable, loving relationships with themselves and others.

In other words, if you help us improve public school sex and relationships education, together we’ll help make every community stronger, happier, and healthier. We’re so glad to have you as part of the movement.
