Watch: These Tucson teens are making sure they don’t leave reproductive health education access up to chance

With reproductive rights under attack and sex ed considered taboo in their community, young people in Tucson have taken their sexual education into their own hands.


Reproductive Health Access Project (RHAP) uses a peer to peer model to teach comprehensive sexual education to teens by teens on topics including birth control, pregnancy testing, STD testing, consent and healthy relationships. RHAP has served over 4,000 young people since it opened in 2017 and is making a huge difference to Tucson’s most vulnerable young people.

Please watch Brave New Film’s latest #YouthInAction film and find out how young people in Tucson are taking charge of their health.

Brave New Films is spotlighting youth-led and intergenerational organizations across the U.S. through its #YouthInAction series. Young people are experts on the issues that impact them, and they belong at the decision-making table. It’s time we listen. For more incredible organizations, go to BraveNewFilms.org/YouthinAction
