So we know it sounds hokey, but you can support the Secular Student Alliance by booking your travel via our travel gateway. You'll pay the same low rates that you would find on the major travel gateways, but a percentage of your purchase price goes to the Secular Student Alliance for us to use to advance our mission. Go ahead and compare rates with the other gateways, and if we have the best price, book it with us and support us.
Be it traveling home for the holidays, going on a great spring break trip, or presenting at a conference, our gateway has all the same services (flights, cars, hotels, cruises, package vacations). Check it out today and give it a try.

The Secular Student Alliance
Sex Ed Month of Action
| || |
Under the Bush administration, school districts received federal money for promoting theologically-based, ineffective "abstinence-only" sex education rather than medically accurate education. The Responsible Education About Life (REAL) Act intends to counter this by providing federal funding to support responsible, comprehensive sex education in schools. This education would include age-appropriate, science-based, and medically accurate information about both abstinence and contraception. Currently, there are no dedicated federal funds allocated for comprehensive sex education in schools.
Advocates for Youth has partnered with Choice USA, Law Students for Reproductive Justice, NARAL Pro-Choice America, Planned Parenthood, SIECUS, Sierra Club and Spiritual Youth for Reproductive Freedom to make October a nation-wide Sex-Ed Month of Action. The Secular Student Alliance is cooperating with Advocates for Youth to help promote the Sex-Ed Month of Action.
We encourage our affiliate groups to get involved and hold an event to take action on sex education!
