Each May, during Sex Ed for All Month (also known as Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month), Fact Forward joins organizations across the country to raise awareness about the need for evidence-based reproductive health education. This year we've decided to engage adolescents directly and bring back Teen Expressions, a creative contest for teens to display their talents and have their voices heard on issues impacting them and their peers throughout the state. We look forward to sharing their work with you May 2021.
We've also created a social media toolkit to make sharing Sex Ed for All and Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month information as easy as possible. You can download and view the toolkit below.
