As the Law and Policy Analyst for Advocates For Youth, Chelsea has ample knowledge and experience to provide insight on the topic to those working within the field of Adolescent Sexual Health Education. Learn more about Chelsea here.
Chelsea will discuss the Congressional Parental Bill of Rights Act and state Parental Bill of Rights. In addition, she will provide historical context about the Parental Rights Movement.
Chelsea will help learners understand how much of a concerted effort the pushback against inclusive education has become and how interconnected library book bans, anti-CRT bills, sexuality education, minor consent and confidentiality laws, and bills targeting trans youth truly are. This will help organizations and individuals better understand their role in the fight against these restrictive pieces of legislation.
