Families Are Talking
The Family Project, which includes the Families Are Talking Web site and newsletter, is a project of the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS). This project began in 2000 to empower parents and caregivers to communicate with their children about sexuality-related issues, to provide tools to help families communicate about these issues, and to encourage parents, caregivers, and young people to become advocates on the local, state, and national levels for sexuality-related issues including comprehensive sexuality education programs in the schools.
Since 1964, SIECUS has been the leading national voice for comprehensive sexuality education and protecting the rights of individuals to make personal sexual choices. SIECUS believes that sexuality is a natural and healthy part of life and that all people should have rights to the information, skills, and services they need to make responsible decisions. In our 38 years, SIECUS has provided millions of parents, professionals, educators, young people, and individuals of every age and background with clear and objective information about sexuality issues, training, and technical assistance.
It is our hope that the Family Project will serve as a valuable source of information for families to talk about sexuality-related issues, helping to build a foundation for young people to become sexually healthy adults.
