Podcast Ep. 5: The Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP)

We are excited to introduce the fifth episode in our podcast series, "Common Sense: The Case for Comprehensive Sexual Education in Illinois." This week's episode will focus on an awesome new bill currently under consideration in the Illinois Senate, the Personal Responsibility Education Program, also known as the Illinois PREP Act.

This bill would require public schools that teach sexual health classes to offer an age-appropriate, medically accurate comprehensive sexual education curriculum. This curriculum would include both abstinence and evidence-based information regarding the prevention of pregnancy and disease. We will be joined by Brigid Leahy, the Director of Legislative Affairs at Planned Parenthood of Illinois to discuss the importance of the PREP Act and the incredible impact comprehensive sexual education would have on Illinois teens and their communities. This bill will be voted on by the State House by April 15, so make sure to see the Action Links below to show your support today!
