In response to an alarming campaign to remove sexual health education from Florida schools and the sex ed barrier bill currently being considered by the Florida Legislature, physicians, public health professionals, and advocates are forming the Florida Healthy Youth Alliance. Alliance goals are to develop an online hub of information for advocacy, and be a source of tools and guidance for school districts seeking to select and implement medically-accurate sexual health education. Check out the Alliance’s fact sheet and their summary of support for sexual health education in Florida.
Join the Alliance: To be added to the Alliance email distribution list, email organizer Dr. Elissa Barr, Professor of Public Health at University of North Florida. The first online meeting is being planned for March.
