Critical Exposure partnered with a teen group at Children's Hospital this summer to investigate issues of sexual health, with a particular focus on the lack of sex education in schools. Students explored photos taken by people with HIV/AIDS from around the globe and eventually took to the streets of D.C. to document any signs of public education around sexual health. The youth interviewed individuals who they encountered on the streets about these issues, spent a day at the World AIDS conference and wrote letters to their principals about the need for sexual education in schools. We hope to expand on this program by continuing to work with this same group of youth once the school year resumes.
