Condoms & Bananas: Our Broken Sex Ed System & Its Impact

Mar 10, 2024

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

Sex Ed in America is broken. We teach young people far more about how to prevent pregnancy than we do about how their bodies actually work. Fast forward, and we see this impacting women and men significantly, years after they graduate from adolescence. Few understand their own bodies or the bodies of others.

In our session, we’ll take a deep dive into all the ways Sex Ed in America has failed us, and how it impacts our country's productivity and vibrancy today. We’ll also discuss the ways each of us is working to combat this while striving to instill further change for the next generation.
