Presented by the Sierra Club Redwood Chapter Newsletter, The REDWOOD NEEDLES
Some of you helped gather information for our study on the status of Sexuality Education in Sonoma County's middle and high schools. We are participating in a U.U. Forum Sunday Oct. 21st at 12:30 at the U.U. Fellowship &endash; Stony Point and Todd Rds. &endash; to: discuss our findings; review U.U.'s plans for teaching the "Our Whole Lives Curricula"; and to discuss helping to provide comprehensive Sexuality Education to Sonoma County's teenagers. We will also discuss how to support the Health Clinic at Elsie Allen High School &endash; the Sonoma County high school with the highest level of teen-age pregnancies.
