Only about one-half of teen mothers earn a high school diploma by age 22, compared to 89% of their peers who do not become parents as teens. Nearly 3 in 10 girls in the U.S. get pregnant at least once before age 20.
That's why we're fighting hard to pass the Pregnant and Parenting Students Access to Education Act — a bill that will provide resources to establish policies and practices that help pregnant and parenting youth stay in school and graduate ready for college or careers.
To give this bill a strong start, we need as many co-sponsors as possible. Please improve the odds for teen mothers by asking your Members of Congress to co-sponsor the Pregnant and Parenting Student Access to Education Act.
Dear [Decision Maker],
I strongly urge you to co-sponsor the Pregnant and Parenting Students Access to Education (PPSAE) Act.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
