Assembly set to vote on LGBT inclusive Healthy Youth Act!

The Wisconsin State Assembly is poised to vote on the Healthy Youth Act tomorrow, and they need to hear from you.

This groundbreaking bill requires schools that teach sex education to do so in a responsible, comprehensive manner that includes information about sexuality, abstinence and birth control to prevent teen pregnancies, and STDs including HIV/AIDS.

This piece of legislation not only requires that class materials are not biased towards sexual orientation, but also will ensure that LGBT youth receive sexuality education that is medically accurate and includes information about reducing risk behaviors.

Fair Wisconsin believes that it is only through comprehensive and medically accurate sex education that our youth will learn the lessons necessary to reduce their risk, stay healthy and build a safe learning environment and community.

That’s why Fair Wisconsin has joined Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin and the Health Youth Coalition to educate our legislators about the need for this critical legislation and its impact on the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

But we can’t pass this legislation with out you. Contact your Representative and urge them to pass the Healthy Youth Act TODAY!

Thanks for all you do,

Katie Belanger
Executive Director
