The Issues

Access to Healthcare & Comprehensive Sex Education

Every young person should have access to affordable, quality, healthcare and comprehensive LGBTQIA+ inclusive sexual health information and services in their communities. Unfortunately, discriminatory policies and lack of sufficient funding means young people are denied the rights, resources, and respect needed to live and make informed and independent decisions about their sexual and reproductive lives. We need policies that give young people information and resources so they can lead full and healthy lives with dignity and autonomy.

We need policies that:

  • Provide universal and free healthcare that offers full coverage
  • Fund programs that support equitable health and wellbeing
  • Expand access to contraceptive care
  • Ensure health equity for immigrants
  • Support comprehensive, medically accurate, LGBTQIA+ inclusive sexuality education programs
  • Achieve menstrual equity
  • End shackling of pregnant incarcerated people
