"Talking is Power Campaign" Supports Parents in Educating Native American Youth about HIV

Oct 14, 2020 | Julia Zigman (she/her)

To help American Indian and Alaska Native parents and caring adults initiate difficult conversations about sexual health topics with their teens and young adults, in Spring 2020 the Healthy Native Youth collaborative launched the Talking is Power campaign. Caring adults can text the word “EMPOWER” to 97779 to receive weekly text messages that include culturally appropriate tips and resources that support conversations with their teens about topics such as sexual health, pregnancy, HIV and STDs, condoms, and consent. Learn more on HIV.gov.
