As a teen, your voice matters! Currently, Nevada does not require medically accurate and age-appropriate sex ed, and this has a direct impact on your health.
In order to be able to make well-informed decisions about your health and relationships, you need to be equipped with accurate information that comes from your school and your parents. Sex education is about more than preventing pregnancies and STIs, it’s about overall health and safety.
Nobody is more directly affected by this issue than young people, especially those still in K-12. The Nevada Teen Health and Safety Coalition is comprised of parents, youth, medical professionals, and advocates across the state who believe medically accurate and age-appropriate sex ed will help keep you healthy, safe, and informed.
As a teen, you can sign this petition that tells Governor Sandoval that you want medically accurate sex ed in Nevada schools.
