Governor signs AB 2601 requiring comprehensive sex ed in charter schools

The sponsors of AB 2601 (legislation to extend the California Healthy Youth Act to Charter Schools) are super excited to announce that it was signed today by Gov. Brown. We want to extend a huge thank you to all of the folks who sent in support letters, signed petitions, tweeted, post, showed up at committee hearings, sent us good vibes and high fives to help us get it passed! 
This has been a project of C2P folks for years - and now there is a law to point to that requires sex ed in charter schools. The mandate for charter schools takes effect next summer, prior to the start of the 2019-2020 school year.
We look forward to working with all of you to make sure that this legislation is implemented so all of California's public school students get the vital information they need around sexual and reproductive health. 
The Sponsors are: 
Act for Women and Girls
ACLU of California 
Black Women for Wellness
Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California

    Very important! All California youth need to be educated. It would be helpful if this law could extend to private schools as well.
