Legislation and Policy

  • Sex, Etc.’s “Sex in the States” profile on Rhode Island: This interactive map can zoom into any state and give a profile on issues such as emergency contraception, LGBTQ rights, age of consent, HIV testing, abortion rights, birth control, sexting, pregnancy, condoms, and more. Very visually appealing and easy to read, so it’s also a good resource to present to youth inquiring about sexual health and their rights!
  • State Policies on Sex Education in Schools: This resource from the National Conference of State Legislatures provides information on current legislation around sexuality education in schools, including state laws on medical accuracy.
  • National Coalition to Support Sexuality Education’s RI Profile: Unfortunately, this resource doesn’t seem to have been updated since 2008. Still, it’s a valuable page that includes information about RI’s trajectory on these issues. One of the most unique pieces of information in this resource is its listing of organizations that support or DON’T support comprehensive sexuality education.
