In an exciting new project, faith leaders and community organizations are working with the African-American, Hmong, Hispanic/Latino and Native American communities to plan culturally-specific dialogues for teens and parents. Although the dates are not yet set, each event will include cultural-specific traditions and will focus on helping participants gain a better understanding of teen pregnancy and realize they are a key part of the solution.
Call the MOAPPP office for details.
