Our Local Partners in Georgia
In 2009, Planned Parenthood of Georgia launched a campaign promoting the use of the female condom, with the goal of requiring that all places that sell male condoms also sell female condoms. This project was conducted in partnership with the Feminist Women's Health Center and supported by the National Institute.
In 2009, SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Health Collective co-hosted the Southeastern Regional Summit in Atlanta, bringing together advocates, elected leaders, and public health officials to discuss reproductive health challenges and opportunities for solutions.
SisterLove Inc. (Atlanta, GA) engaged 20 Atlanta youth in their Healthy Love Youth Leaders (HLYL) Network, a youth-led sexual and reproductive health advocacy program, in support for comprehensive sexuality education. Youth leaders hosted two advocacy days around sex education and messaging. Using information gathered from the Youth Advocacy Day, SisterLove published a policy outlining recommendations for improving HIV-related and reproductive health outcomes among young people in Georgia.
