Want to speak to an expert on young people’s reproductive and sexual health and rights? Contact emily@advocatesforyouth.org

Advocates for Youth partners with youth leaders, adult allies, and youth-serving organizations to advocate for policies and champion programs that recognize young people’s rights to honest sexual health information; accessible, confidential, and affordable sexual health services; and the resources and opportunities necessary to create sexual health equity for all youth.

Advocates is excited to work with members of the media to increase coverage of young people’s first-person experiences with reproductive and sexual health and rights; to share expertise on policies which impact young people, especially the most marginalized young people; and to provide resources around sex education, reproductive health and rights, youth activism, and other topics.  Please reach out to emily@advocatesforyouth.org with questions!
