“It was a pleasure to work with the Texas Council for Family Violence to improve health education for Texas students. Collaboration is such an important part of our work and we’re excited about this partnership,” said Molly Clayton, Executive Director of the Texas Campaign. “We believe that every Texas teen should learn about healthy relationships as a part of their sexual health curriculum so that they can stay safe and make informed decisions.”
