July 21: Save Sex-Ed Peterborough Rally
On July 21, many cities across Ontario will be gathering to rally against the new Conservative provincial government’s decision to repeal the sexual education curriculum that was implemented in 2015 by the Liberal government. The repeal of this curriculum brings back a curriculum that is over 20 years old, and predates same-sex marriage, social media and technology. This curriculum robs youth of essential learning about consent, same-sex marriage, gender identity, and navigating sexual relationships in a world of technology.
On July 21, join the Peterborough rally to have our voices heard about why we say NO to the decisions being made by Ford’s government.
Location is To Be Announced, and a lineup of speakers and performances is to come. Please spread the word and encourage folks to save the date for this important gathering!!
*If you would like to volunteer your time to help organize, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the administrators of this event! 🙂
July 21, Noon to 3 p.m, Location to be announced.
