Exploiting Our Kids

*See evidence below

Reasons for our concerns…

The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) and the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) are supporting programs that allow teens to teach other teens about sex; not certified teachers, but rather minors that are unlicensed, unqualified, and unaccountable.

Oregon Students (ie: Youth Advisory Councils) attend the Adolescent Sexuality Conference (ASC) to be “trained” and then return to their respective schools to “educate” their peers.
