Health & Wellness
With the way that sexual and reproductive healthcare is constantly politicized and attacked, it can be hard to remember that it is, in fact, healthcare. But spend a little time with URGE and you’ll be reminded that we all have sexual and reproductive health needs and we all deserve that access to care.
For each of us, health and wellness looks different. It may mean the opportunity to get inclusive, comprehensive sex education in high school. It might be having transition related medical services covered by insurance for transgender people. For people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, it involves culturally competent and judgement free medical information from healthcare providers.
For URGE chapters, the way they advocate for the health and wellness of all is just as diverse. In everything from advocating for more birth control options in student health centers to ensuring safe spaces for trans students, these chapters are on the cutting edge of what their campus needs.
