Illinois Caucus for Adolescent Health

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: September 10, 2012, 7:07 PM

Description

The Illinois Caucus for Adolescent Health envisions a world in which all young adults in Illinois use their power to achieve health and well-being in their own lives and for their communities. In partnership with youth, we advocate sound policies and practices that promote a positive approach to adolescent sexual health and parenting. Our strategies to accomplish our mission include youth leadership development, grassroots organizing, youth and adult training, policy analysis and development, and legislative advocacy.

We believe reproductive justice is an integral part of a broader human rights framework. Our reproductive justice work must align with other social justice movements to address the multilayered impact of oppression on at-risk youth. In all our projects, we focus on serving marginalized adolescent groups, including low-income, immigrant, homeless, LGBTQI, and pregnant and parenting youth. We believe reproductive freedom for adolescents must encompass the choice to prevent pregnancy and disease with sexual health care information and services; to terminate a pregnancy through safe, accessible, legal abortion; and to bring a pregnancy to term and parent.

We focus on three initiatives: 1) sexual health care access; 2) comprehensive sexual health education in schools and communities; and 3) supportive programs for pregnant and parenting youth in completing their educational goals. With a small but diverse staff, we maximize our impact by participating in partnerships and collaborative efforts. ICAH is an equal opportunity employer and values diversity in all its definitions.
