The United Nations Foundation’s Universal Access Project, in partnership with Planned Parenthood Federation of America and the Sierra Club, announced the first-ever Why We Care Youth contest today. Why We Care Youth serves as a platform for young people living in the U.S. to share what access to reproductive health and contraception has personally meant to them, and why U.S. policymakers should care about expanding access around the world…
