Texas: Campaign for Sex Education Is Starting
February 23, 2011
In response to Texas' high teen birth and repeat-birth rates, a 34-member coalition of non-profit and faith groups on Tuesday began a community conversation to help provide families with comprehensive, accurate sex education. "SAY What?" (Sound Advice for Youth) was convened by the National Council of Jewish Women with the help of a Ford Foundation grant. The inaugural meeting, "Are We Failing Our Kids? A Look at Sex Education in Dallas," was held Tuesday and featured Susan Tortolero, an associate professor of behavioral science and health promotion at the University of Texas-Austin School of Public Health, and the Rev. Dr. Joseph Clifford of First Presbyterian Church of Dallas. For more information about the effort, visit www.soundadviceforyouth.org.
