To highlight the strong connection between faith and preventing teen pregnancy, The National Campaign and the National Coalition of Pastors’ Spouses have developed a guide, Faith Matters: How African-American Faith Communities Can Help Prevent Teen Pregnancy. Religious organizations, faith leaders, youth ministers, and pastors’ spouses are in a unique and powerful position to make a difference in preventing teen pregnancy. The guide for African-American faith communities provides practical tips to help young people navigate the difficult issues of love, sex, and relationships and avoid too-early pregnancy and parenthood.
