Want to get involved in sex education advocacy but not sure where to start? You’ve come to the right place.

There are lots of ways to get involved in supporting sex education in your school and community — whether it’s to protect and support the great policies you may already have or to advocate for better policies.

Find Out How You Can Support Sex Education

Here are a few things you can do to get involved in sex education advocacy:

  • Find your representatives and senators, and tell them to support the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program (TPPP) and the Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP), and put an end to abstinence-only-until-marriage (AOUM) and sexual risk avoidance (SRA) programs. Urging your elected officials to support sex education programs helps ensure that all young people have access to sex education.
  • Find out what the laws are in your state. If they’re comprehensive, contact your local school district to make sure they’re following the laws. If they aren’t or if they don’t exist, tell your local representative that you want better sex education laws in your state.
  • Go to your local school board to find out what sex education looks like in your community’s schools. Organize with your friends or other advocates to demand better sex education policies and programs in your school district.
  • Find out what your local Planned Parenthood sex educators can provide in your school and community.
