Currently comprehensive sexual health education is not mandated in schools nationwide. The Real Education for Healthy Youth Act would require all students to be provided with comprehensive and inclusive classroom education about sexual and reproductive health and healthy relationships. This act would help teens in schools make healthy, informed decisions about their sexual and reproductive health. Urge your representatives to support the Real Education for Healthy Youth Act by taking action now.
