President's Column

September 2003
Contemporary Sexuality;Sep2003, Vol. 37 Issue 9, p3
The struggle for available, accurate and sexual information and the sexual rights of minorities has been in the news, and the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) has played a supportive role in some of these issues. Another bill has been proposed to increase funding for "abstinence-until-marriage" sex education programs. AASECT continued to join other organizations in letter writing campaigns to oppose such funding, educating key legislators about the absence of research-proven efficacy of such programs. Also, in addition to efforts to influence governmental policy, AASECT members provide accurate information for major publications.
