To support medically accurate sex-ed.

This petition had 214 supporters

We are students at the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay. Our mission is to advocate for and educate the public and our legislators about the need for medically accurate information in our sex education system. By doing this we will provide useful information on sex education and healthy relationships.

Current law states: "Medically accurate information" means information that is scientifically-based and published, where appropriate, in peer- reviewed journals and textbooks."

Goal of project: To raise the bar on the quality of information provided in sex education classes in Wisconsin. Specifically, we seek to revise language in the current state law to strengthen the definition of the term “medically accurate” to include (a) information that is supported by the weight of research conducted in compliance with accepted scientific methods and (b) the information is recognized as accurate by relevant leading professional organizations or agencies, such as the American Medical Association, the American Public Health Association, or the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Please sign our petition to show your support for medically accurate information in sexual education.
