First I would like to thank Cindi Cassis Branham and Julia Perry for joining our Meetup.
Here’s our comprehensive sex education page @https://alabamasolutions.weebly.com/solutions/comprehensive-sex-education . There’s still a list of people we’ll need to have a meeting with in order to distribute more sex ed brochures: UAH Admin, public school librarians, nurses, and the boards of education, Boys & Girls Club, Recreational Centers, Girls Ink.. The end goal is to make sure that everyone has easier access to comprehensive sex education to prevent STI’s, STD’s etc, abortions by unwanted pregnancies and to help with awareness for reproductive health and wellness and planned pregnancies. Cindi has contacted the 2 South Huntsville Public Library Branches and both have accepted ARRA’s Sex Ed Brochures! Awesome! Thank you Cindi!
Amanda Reyes, President of The Yellowhammer Fund @https://yellowhammerfund.org/ and on FB @https://www.facebook.com/YellowFund/ had this to say, “We just started our funding line, and we've been intensely busy trying to make sure our volunteers can run it on their own. One of the projects Yellowhammer Fund would like to work on with others around the state, however, is state legislation to give youth access to comprehensive, medically accurate sex education. There are several national organizations that we have alliances with that have money and supporter resources that could help us build a grassroots campaign around the policy. But we NEED a legislator to propose and support it, and we MUST have Republicans come across the aisle.”
Pamela J. Willis says this about the Linda D. Foundation “It is the non-profit arm of ARRA. Linda D Foundation is based in Huntsville, AL & is volunteer run. 100% of donations goes to help Alabama women with birth control, morning after pills, sex ed for teens & abortion costs. There is a donate button on the website. If you prefer to send a check, you can send a FB message or an email & we will give you a mailing address.” https://www.facebook.com/AlabamaReproductiveRightsAdvocates/
