My experiences working with girls in NYC from middle school on up has been quite an education (and lots of fun!) in more ways than I could imagine. But I've been shocked at how little accurate information gets to youth (girls and boys) about their bodies and sex ed. It appalls me that we live in a time where we need to qualify the term sex ed with the qualifiers "age-appropriate medically accurate." This should be a given. Come out and make sure that students get good info in New York. Thanks to Jen for the announcement-- Patti

Join Senator Velmanette Montgomery

at the Downtown Brooklyn Campus at LIU
to learn how YOU can help bring age-appropriate, medically accurate sex education to NYC schools AND increase state funding for school-based
health centers statewide.
In the wake of the State Health Department's rejection of federal money for abstinence-only programs, we must act now to ensure that $2.6 million in state funding, which was once used to supplement these programs, be re-directed to support real sex education that can saves lives.
The event will begin at 4 p.m. in the Campus courtyard located between the Cyber Cafe and the Library Learning Center underpass.
Enter at DeKalb Avenue and Hudson Avenue.
