Louisiana parents, you need to be heard

The Geaux Talk campaign gives Louisiana parents and caregivers the tools to start conversations about sexual health at home and to contact their school board members about including comprehensive sex education (CSE) in their child’s school curriculum.

61% of Louisiana parents surveyed believe their child has received or will receive sex education in school.

In reality, it’s likely kids are not receiving any. Medically-accurate, fact-based curriculum in schools could help improve the overall health of Louisiana’s youth.
