- Not all Illinois youth are receiving accurate, honest information about their sexual health
- Illinois public schools do not have any guidelines on what to teach when it comes to sexual health education.
The lack of education is hurting Illinois youth. Illinois ranks 18th out of all states for teen birth rates, 3rd for the highest rates of Chlamydia and Gonorrhea infections, and 6th for the highest rates of HIV transmission.
We need to ensure that our young people have the information and tools they need to make healthy, responsible decisions and to protect themselves from infection. Can you join our campaign to bring medically accurate, age-appropriate, comprehensive sex education to Illinois youth? Please sign our petition today!
