Last Tuesday, March 10th, was Adolescent Health Advocacy Day in NC.  Over 200 youth activists and state officials gathered at the NC capitol to learn about effective advocacy and important issues like comprehensive sex education, teen pregnancy, mental health, and physical health.  The morning featured youth speakers and state senators and representatives speaking about why we needed to make our voices heard.

Thursday, February 5th, the Healthy Youth Act (House Bill 88) was officially filed in the North Carolina House of Representatives. The Healthy Youth Act would require schools to offer a two-track system for teaching sex education in North Carolina- one for abstinence-only education and another for comprehensive sex education. Parents decide which track their child will take.

Time for comprehensive sex education in NC!
