(Washington D.C., Thursday, May 7, 2020) – A new poll conducted for Power to Decide’s #TalkingIsPower campaign reveals that the majority of adults see an increased opportunity for conversations with the young person in their life about love, sex, relationships and ultimately birth control while sheltering in place.
In addition, 90% of the adults agree that these conversations positively influence youth to make informed decisions about these critical issues.
The poll reflects responses conducted in April 2020 of more than 200 men and women age 18 and older.
May is Talking is Power Month, a national effort to spark meaningful conversations about sex, love, relationships and ultimately birth control between young people and the parents and champions, such as an aunt, uncle, grandparents or mentor, who care about them.
Power to Decide’s #TalkingIsPower tagline is to Start Early. Talk Often. You are more powerful than you think, which reminds parents and champions how powerful they are in the lives of young people.
Power to Decide is a private, non-partisan, non-profit organization that works to ensure all people—no matter who they are, where they live or what their economic status might be—have the power to decide if, when and under what circumstances to get pregnant and have a child.
