Advocates for Youth applauds Gilead Pharmaceuticals for its groundbreaking donation of PrEP
The Trump-Pence administration will stop at nothing to attack the health and rights of LGBTQ people, immigrants, and young people across the world. The U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations serves as the permanent representative of the United States and represents U.S. foreign policy interests on the global stage. Both before and after Haley’s resignation, the U.S. government has doubled-down on their attacks against marginalized communities.
For the past two years since the Muslim Ban was enacted, President Trump has continued to manufacture policies that profile individuals and attack our nation of immigrants. We condemn any attempts to vilify Muslims and support the young people leading the charge against this Administration’s hateful policies. The NO BAN Act rightfully attempts to curtail these discriminatory policies.
It is the government’s responsibility to prepare young people with the resources and skills they need to lead safe and healthy lives. This means providing young people with access to critical information to help them make informed decisions about their bodies, their lives, and their futures — not harmful and ineffective abstinence-only curriculum and crisis pregnancy centers that perpetuate a culture where people are shamed for their personal decisions, including healthcare choices.
