Ladies and Gentlemen, meet Crisanta Duran - Farm team member and Progressive Champion-of-the-week!
The new session may have just begun, but Crisanta - a Colorado State Rep - has already made her voice heard on an important new sex-ed initiative, focused on creating a comprehensive sex-ed standard for the state of Colorado. The bill outlines a curriculum covering everything from abstinence to birth control and disease prevention, and reaches out to straight and LGBT teens alike.
A Republican majority in the last session prevented movement on the issue, but with the Democrats back in control it looks like Colorado students finally stand a chance of receiving the vast benefits of a quality health education.
Join us in congratulating Crisanta on her successful reelection and continued commitment to our kids and our communities.
