Tell your state Representative that you support quality sex education in IL

House Bill 3027, a bill that will ensure age-appropriate, medically-accurate sexual health education to Illinois public schools was approved by the Illinois Senate last night. Now we only have a few days to pass it through the Illinois House. Click here to contact your State Representative!

According to the Guttmacher Institute, comprehensive programs that provide information about both abstinence and contraception can help delay the onset of sexual activity among teens, reduce their number of sexual partners and increase contraceptive use when they become sexually active.

We need to let our legislators know that our youth deserve quality edcuation that will give them the tools they need to stay safe and make healthy decisions. Urge your State Representative to vote YES on the motion to concur with Senate Amendments 1 and 3 to HB 3027.
