California Must Invest More in Preventing STDs

California has extremely high STD rates and young people are bearing the brunt of this public health crisis. More than half of all STDs in the state are experienced among California youth ages 15 – 25 years old. STDs can cause serious health issues, like cancer, blindness, and infertility. Its time California’s government invested more money to help stop the spread of STDs and protect the health of teens and young adults.

Take Action! Tell lawmakers to increase funding for STD prevention programs in our state.

Accessing Sexual Health Services Through Your Phone – Help Make It Real!

There are many reasons why it is hard for Californians, including teens, to get to a clinic for sexual health services. A new piece of legislation – SB 1023 – would make it easier to access sexual health services using your phone – AND have those services covered by insurance.

Take Action: Contact Your State Senator and tell them to support SB 1023!
