The Religious Institute’s Open Letter to Religious Leaders about Sex Education and the
Open Letter to Religious Leaders on Adolescent Sexuality reinforce scriptural and theological commitments to truth-telling and call for “full and honest education about sexual and reproductive health.”
Affirming the sacredness of sexuality, these Open Letters articulate the moral obligation of faith communities to ensure that all young people receive sexuality education that is inclusive, truthful, and empowering. They also outline characteristics of comprehensive sexuality education programs that honor the diversity of values in communities.
More than 1,000 clergy across the United States have endorsed the Open Letter about Sex Education.
