All politics starts locally, and since Chris and I are both based in NYC, some of our calls for action are directly related to politics in New York. Let us know what's going on in your part of the world, too!

From Planned Parenthood NYC:

Ninety-four percent of U.S. parents believe students should get sex education in schools. Unfortunately, that is not what's currently happening.

Speak up! Call the City of New York and tell them we need sex education in our schools.

It's easy and it will only take 2 minutes:

Step 1: Dial 311 (The call is free!)
Step 2: Ask to make a suggestion to the Department of Education.
Step 3: Tell the operator that you believe students should get sex education every year in the public schools. Tell them sex education should be required for all kids.
Step 4: They will ask you for your contact information. You can leave your name and address or you can ask to be anonymous.
Your suggestion will go to the Department of Education and a report of 311 calls is sent to the Mayor and the City Council. Speak up and make your voice heard!

If you do this, please leave a commenta and tell us how it went!
