" I am thrilled to be a Millennium Fellow because of the connections it opens between like minded individuals who seek to make a positive impact on their local and global communities. Those connections are just one step in creating a generation of people who are capable and willing to collaborate to solve world problems. Change begins with connection and understanding! "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Sex Education for a Change
This project seeks to change laws, school policies, and perceptions regarding sex education in Arizona. Part of this involves spreading information about the necessity of curriculums not limited to abstinence-only education while dispelling misinformation associated with a more comprehensive curriculum. It also involves meeting with local coalitions to back legislation that supports their inclusive goals while speaking out against legislation counterproductive to those goals. While their legislative goals are somewhat on hold due to current events, the measurable goals include community outreach that seeks to show where abstinence-only education is failing to protect young people and the positive change a more comprehensive curriculum can provide.
