  • Comprehensive Sex Education

  • Dr. Alexander's TEDxMileHigh December 2018 talk called for the need for consent education and comprehensive sex education in schools. In early 2019, Colorado HB 19-1032 (Comprehensive Human Sexuality Education) was introduced which would require consent education, LGBTQ+ inclusive education, and developmentally appropriate education in Colorado schools that provide sex education. Dr. Alexander testified in support of the bill in front of the Colorado House Committee on Public Health Care & Insurance, and the bill was signed into law in Summer 2019.
