Citing disproportionate teen pregnancy rates, the YEAH! (Youth Empowerment Adolescent Health) Network and Planned Parenthood are rallying to bring comprehensive sex education to Springfield schools. They are hoping to collect 1,000 letters of support to present to the School Committee on Thursday night (April 2nd, 6PM, City Hall, Rm 220). Download the letter in Spanish or English here, sign it, and get it to them by email, fax, phone, mail, or whatever. Planned Parenthood made a similar push last June, and Holyoke seems to be making the issue a priority again now, too.
