Hookups’, ‘Friends With Benefits’, ‘Open or Poly Relationships’: Oregon Attorney General's Sexual Assault Task Force Promoting Teen Sexual Health?
16 November 2016
Oregonians want to know why the Attorney General’s Oregon Sexual Assault Task Force (OSATF) has chosen to showcase Scarleteen as a credible resource in which to promote sexual health and sexual violence prevention in Oregon public schools. On October 10, 2016, the OSATF held a statewide Summit in Portland Oregon titled “Sexual Health Promotion and Sexual Violence Prevention: Connecting the Dots”. Heather Corinna, Director of Scarleteen (http://www.scarleteen.com/), an organization and website which provides “sexuality, sexual health and relationship information” to young people, did the closing plenary at this October 10th Summit.
