HOW CAN I HELP?

Get Updates and Take Action
Each year, advocates push Louisiana legislators to pass policies that would ensure students in our state get the sexual health information they need. We need everyone's voice behind us. Sign up to receive notices about when to call your legislators and take action!
Share your story with legislators directly
Legislators listen when people come to the Capitol in Baton Rouge to share their knowledge. If you want to share your story with the legislators at a public hearing, we will help. We train advocates on how to write compelling testimony and how to deliver it effectively.
How do I determine who my legislators are?
Finding your legislators is as easy as typing in your address. Once you type in your address and click "Find," you will see a list of the names of and links to your state representative, state senator, U.S. congressmen, and the state's two United States senators. Links to their respective websites are provided by clicking on their name.
How do I contact my legislator?
To talk directly to a Representative or Senator, contact the House switchboard (225-342-6945) or the Senate switchboard (225-342-2040).
CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE!
The best way to get involved with #MyLASexEd is by sharing your story and encouraging your friends and family to share their stories. Comprehensive sex ed is so important to long term sexual health, and by sharing your story you’re helping to highlight the ineffectiveness of abstinence only sex ed. The more stories we collect, the more likely it is that policy makers will take notice.
You can record a video or write out your story, whichever you prefer! Share as much as you are comfortable sharing. Please include your age and your hometown, and if you are comfortable sharing your name and the name of the high school you attended, please share that too. Your response can be anywhere from a few sentences to a few paragraphs. Here are a few questions that might help get you started, but feel free to tell your story in whatever way you want!
TELL THEM THAT YOU SUPPORT COMPREHENSIVE SEXUAL EDUCATION!
