Youth and Adults Throughout Illinois Urge Governor Blagojevich and Congress: Invest Our Tax Dollars Wisely
Date:4/15/2008

In places as far apart of Bloomington, Champaign, Chicago, Maywood, Quincy, Skokie and other areas of the state, people raised their voices and educated taxpayers about the need for public investment in responsible approaches to sexual health education. They are calling on schools to take a proactive and positive approach to the sexual health education of their students, parents to become active and engaged in the sexual health education of the
