Attention everyone! Important things are happening in Omaha right now, and you can be a part of it! My name is Holly Boyle, NAP’s Linkage to Care & Community Engagement Coordinator in Omaha. I grew up here and am a proud resident. I have a strong opinion on the following topic. There’s a lot that I want to say, but I will just give you the most important information. I am extremely passionate about making this change into a reality.
As some of you might know, Omaha Public Schools are updating their 30 year old Human Growth & Development curriculum. This is a critical point for us advocates and honestly anyone who wants to see a progressive change in this education for our youth.
Do we step up, be part of an important change, and have our voices heard? Do we make sure that the new curriculum is comprehensive and inclusive, so that we are giving sexual health information to diverse identities? Do we make sure that the information is medically accurate, so that our students have correct information?
The answer is YES we do! Let’s increase Omaha’s sexual health literacy rate and empower our youth to make educated and informed decisions with comprehensive, diverse, inclusive, and medically accurate information about their sexual health.
This ball is rolling right now, and EVERYONE is a critical part of helping make this happen. OPS is holding two more review sessions for the upcoming curriculum. The information is listed below:
All reviews will occur from 5pm-7pm (anyone is welcome to attend)
- Tuesday, March 1, 2016 @ Northwest High Magnet School Cafeteria, 8204 Crown Point Avenue
- Wednesday, March 2, 2016 @ North High Magnet School Cafeteria, 4410 N. 36th Street
Make a difference! DO IT!
