Ontario’s updated #SexEd program is the only space youth have to discuss and unpack consent. Amazing non-profit organizations and individual teachers can give a more in depth education, but without provincial-wide comprehensive sexual health education, youth have very little education on the subject.

On June 7th, challenge rape culture and support survivors by voting for a candidate that won’t repeal or “restructure” Sex Ed.
