Today is National Comprehensive Sex Education Call-In Day!!

Even though Sex Education Month of Action is coming to a close, it isn't too late to get involved. Take Action! Call your local Senator TODAY and ask them to strip the Hatch Amendment!

The Hatch Amendment is an amendment that would have a serious impact on sex education in our classrooms. Voted into the Senate Finance Committee's version of healthcare reform 12-11, the Hatch Amendment lays out a $50 million funding plan to get failed abstinence-only programs back into our classrooms.

Call your Senators today to let them know that we won't allow them to slip funding for failed ab-only programs in to health care reform legislation. Strip the Hatch Amendment!
