LexPride is proud to sponsor this event which includes advocating for comprehensive, inclusive sex education in all MA schools who chose to provide sex ed. Not only is inclusive sex ed sorely needed to keep our LGBTQ youth safe, including all students helps to break down negative stigma and is pivotal to reducing the horrendously high harassment and suicide ideation rates of MA's LGBTQ youth.
At Sexual Health Lobby Day, advocates from across the state will come together to declare: access to sexual and reproductive health care is a basic human right. The day will begin with a tabling fair and short speaking program to get you fired up, followed by a training to prepare you to hold effective conversations with your lawmakers. Then we'll send you off to meet with your state representative and senator to advocate for a new bill to boldly and proactively expand access to safe, legal abortion; legislation that expands access to comprehensive sex education; and funding for Massachusetts family planning, teen pregnancy prevention, and HIV/AIDS prevention programs.
