The Oregon Teen Pregnancy Task Force Board has decided to cancel the 2015 Adolescent Sexuality Conference (ASC).
For years the ASC has provided valuable content and discussion to inform and engage public educators, health professionals, parents and youth. Our mission continues to be focused on facilitating communication and awareness about healthy adolescent sexuality. While we remain steadfast in our vision, we feel current conditions have shifted the setting and our ability to offer open, safe and honest conversations about sexuality.
Additionally, we value our longtime relationship with our hosts in the Seaside community. We cannot, in good conscience, hold a conference when we believe participants and our Seaside partners may be put in uncomfortable or unpleasant situations.
We remain dedicated to our mission and will carefully consider how to continue to meet that mission in a positive, respectful manner.
Thank you for your continued support.
