Sponsored by the Sex Education Policy Action Council (SEPAC), the 2019 Sex Ed Policy Convening will bring together leading state and local sex education experts and advocates to examine the national and state policy landscape; identify entry points for making change happen at the local and school district level; and share best practices for movement building across states and communities to advance sex education for young people.

We hope that you will be able to join us for this event!
