Going Upstream: How to Get Legislation Passed in Support of Sexuality Education for Individuals with I/DD

What is this resource?

What if our states required positive, inclusive sexuality education to people with I/DD in schools or in the communities. In this online workshop, we will hear two stories of states that made this happen, Illinois and Virginia. We will learn what works and doesn’t work when trying to pass legislation and give you tips and tools for making laws and mandates a reality in your state.
