Urge Congress to fund high-quality sex ed and contraceptive care
We know ideological attacks on abortion don't stop there—we are also seeing attacks on contraception and sexual health education. 

That's why we need you to tell Congress how important it is to provide robust funding for programs that give our young people the ability to live healthy lives and achieve their goals; programs like the Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) Program and the Title X (Title X) Family Planning Program. The urgency of this need has only increased during the pandemic.

On June 30, the House Appropriations Committee approved a spending bill that includes $130 million for the TPP Program (a $29 million increase over last year) and $500 million for the Title X Family Planning Program (a $213.5 million increase over last year). On July 28, the Senate Appropriations Committee proposed a spending bill that includes $130 million for the TPP Program and $512 million for Title X. Please contact your members of Congress today. They need to hear from constituents like you about the value of these programs and the need to support these increases in their annual funding.     

  • Increasing funding for the TPP Program will ensure this evidence-based program, recognized by a wide range of bi-partisan experts, can continue to generate high-quality research about how to meet the needs of young people—especially among those who face the greatest disparities.
  • Increasing funding for Title X will ensure that Title X-funded clinics can continue to offer high-quality contraceptive services, preventive screenings, and health education to low-income people, people lacking health insurance, young people, and more—as they have done for the last 50 years.
