    Rally for Sex Ed - Barrie

    When: Friday, July 20, 2018 at 07:00 PM
    Where: Meridian Place Barrie in Barrie, ON, Canada

    As hundreds of thousands of elementary school and high school students near back to school time, we want to ensure that they and all future students can be guaranteed that the 2015 Health and Physical Education (HPE) Curriculum will continue to be taught. We demand that the Government of Ontario, now led by Premier Doug Ford and the Ontario PCs, uphold this curriculum and stand up for students’ education. We also urge all local MPPs to support the curriculum.

    This curriculum is ensuring that young people get the information they need to navigate today’s world. Teaching them about consent and healthy relationships, about their bodies, and about sex and sexual health. Furthermore, it moves towards affirming LGBTQ2+ youth and addressing issues of the Internet age. No student deserves to be left behind. They deserve to have the facts and they should be given to them in a way that is as safe, factual and affirming as possible. 

    We can’t afford to go back, not when so many students are benefiting from this much-needed curriculum. 

    It’s not radical, it’s just catching up.

    Speakers
    We hope to get educators, parents, activists, and youth to talk about the need for a comprehensive HPE curriculum. There will also be an open forum available for people to voice their support.

    Shelly Skinner - parent and advocate
    David Knott - advocate for community safety
    Jennifer Hare - teacher and President of OSSTF District 17 TBU

    More to be announced, along with some short bios! If you would like to speak, please contact Brandon Rhéal via Facebook or at brandon.amyot7@gmail.com.

    This event is held on the land of the Anishinaabeg, in the Dish With One Spoon Wampum territory.
