It's time for 'the talk', New York.

Every person deserves accurate, complete, and inclusive sex education.

Information is power. When young people have the tools they need to make healthy decisions about their bodies and their relationships, they have a brighter future. Comprehensive sexuality education has been shown to improve health outcomes and benefit our youth. Unfortunately, there is no consistent requirement for this education in New York, creating a patchwork system where not all kids receive this education and in some cases are not receiving accurate information.

Young people must have the right to access accurate and complete information that can help them protect themselves and plan for their future. From setting boundaries, bullying, and consent, to STI prevention, contraception, and making healthy decisions – it’s time for New York to set a standard for sex education that centers around our youth’s needs.

Join PPESA in supporting legislation (S 2584A6616) that would require the inclusion of  comprehensive, medically accurate, culturally, age and developmentally appropriate sexuality education in publicly funded K-12 schools statewide.
