Your support helps make sure that local middle and high school students know how HIV is transmitted. With your support, young people learn how to have healthy relationships, and share that information with their friends. Your donation makes sure they understand positive choices, like not having sex until they're ready, then practicing safer sex. You give them a healthy future.
Sadly, Planned Parenthood's opposition works nonstop to try to prevent us from providing exceptional services, honest education and fearless advocacy. In some states, students receive abstinence-only education. In that environment, rates of pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections skyrocket.
It's easy to think that New York State is immune to threats against medically accurate sex education. We're not. But together, we can prevent it. That's why your continued support is so critical.
