The Tri-State Freethinkers will present step-by-step instructions to give you the resources needed to change minds and policies in your local school districts. Abstinence-only until marriage (AOUM) sex education and medically inaccurate materials are still the norm in far too many of our public schools. Not only does abstinence-only until marriage sex education not reduce pregnancy rates, STI infection rates, nor postpone commencement of sexual activity, it increases teen pregnancy and STI infection rates. AOUM programs are not neutral or benign «options», they are actively harming young people. The solution is comprehensive sex education in public schools.
