Today’s post will highlight the recently launched the Future of Sex Ed website, a collaborative effort developed by Advocates for Youth, ANSWER, and SIECUS.
The lessons AIDS advocates can draw from this website are two fold. First: content. The site provides an excellent and in-depth overview of sex education – an issue that is intrinsically related to HIV prevention. Here advocates can easily access all of the information needed to advocate for comprehensive sex ed, including primers on public education and toolkits for states and communities. Its a great resource for anyone interested in this issue.
The second lesson: form. The partner organizations behind the website did a wonderful job of developing a simple, clean website that’s intuitive and easy to navigate. They provide a range of resources which allows site visitors to find the right fit for their needs. For those seeking basic information, there are factsheets. For those looking to do something more, there is a comprehensive toolkit for advocates or information on professional development opportunities.
Overall, Future of Sex Ed is a great example of how to execute an issue-specific site that gives interested advocates a menu of options to get involved.
