Community Interpretation of Reproductive Justice

Colorado Organization for Latina Opportunity and Reproductive Rights

This is a film that describes COLOR's framework and work around comprehensive sexuality education, where we engage diverse and non-traditional stakeholders while holding young people of color at the center.

Colorado Organization for Latina Opportunity and Reproductive Rights has created a video that describes our framework and work around comprehensive sexuality education. We believe that comp sex ed is more than just a birds-and-the-bees discussion, but really something that requires our entire communities to mobilize around. So in our film, you get to see who are the stakeholders that we involve in comprehensive sexuality education, and you also get to learn how you can get involved with it.
