May Is #SexEdForAll Month!
Join Us in Raising Awareness about and Calling for a Real Investment in Sex Ed for All Young People
We invite you to join us as we once again celebrate May as Sex Ed for All Month and collectively (and loudly!) voice our commitment to work toward a world where all young people—no matter where they live or how they identify—get equitable access to the sex education they deserve.
Too many young people fail to receive the sexual health information, education, and access to the care they need to live healthy lives—oftentimes based on who they are and where they live. Since 2019, May has been recognized as Sex Ed for All Month. Sex Ed For All Month is an opportunity to raise awareness and call for real investment in sex education in schools and communities across the country.
Sex education gives young people age-appropriate, medically accurate information and answers to their questions about sex and relationships, without shame or judgment. It has been proven to positively impact young people’s lives. But too many young people don’t have access to sex education, or the programs in their school are shaming or inaccurate.
Sex Ed For All Month is coordinated by the Sex Education Collaborative in collaboration with a national coalition of sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice organizations committed to ensuring equitable and accessible sex education for ALL young people nationwide.
We encourage all organizations who would like to join the efforts to celebrate Sex Ed For All Month to use (and adapt as you wish) the materials in this year's Tool Kit.
Get involved this month by telling us why you believe in Sex Ed for All by following and using the hashtag #SexEdForAll on social media.
Make sure you’re on the list to get the latest news about Sex Ed for All Month.
Join us in working toward Sex Ed for All by…
