Take Action Against the Controversial anti-Teenage Pregnancy Campaign
A few days after the launch of the Think being a teenage parent wont cost you? campaign was released by NYCHRA and Mayor Bloomberg's office I met with a group of powerful and moving advocates, activist, and social justice leaders. We discussed how we felt about the campaign and what we could do against it.
After roughly two hours of discussion and brain storming we created the No Stigma No Shame! counter campaign. Below is the sign on letter we drafted and will be sending to NYC offices behind and responsible for these horrible ads.
Please read the letter and consider signing on. Your voice will be heard along with several other people who disagree with methods used in these ads. Your voice will be heard along side several national and international organizations that all agree that these ads are not the best way to reduce teenage pregnancy rates.
