Contact Mayor Bloomberg and Chancellor Walcott!

First of all, you should sign our petition if you haven't done so already.  Then you can call and email the Mayor and the Chancellor and make clear to them that you do not want your children exposed to the explicit material in the mandated curricula and that you want an alternative which teaches kids self control and personal responsibility. The Mayor’s office can be reached at (212) 788-3000, and the Department of Education can be reached at (718) 935-2000. You can contact the Mayor online here, and the Chancellor here. Here are their mailing addresses:

 

Mayor Bloomberg

City Hall
New York, NY 10007

 

Chancellor Walcott

Tweed Courthouse
52 Chambers Street
New York, NY 10007

 

Here is a sample letter you could use:

 

Dear Mayor Bloomberg [or Chancellor Walcott],

 

As a parent of an NYC Public Schools student, I am writing to express my strong opposition to your sex education mandate in its current form. While I agree with the goals of your mandate, namely the reduction of unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections among teens, I find the material in the curricula offensive. I, and many other parents, would prefer an alternative program which focuses on abstinence as the healthiest choice and encourages children to wait at least until they are adults before becoming sexually active. I will be opting my children out of all sex education classes until an alternative evidence-based program in line with common sense and my personal beliefs is allowed under the mandate.

 

Sincerely,

[Name]

 

You can also contact the Borough Directors if your children are in high school or the District Family Advocate if your children are in elementary or middle school to express your opposition to the sex ed mandate and to request an alternative program. Contact information for both is below:
