ICAH VISION MISSION

We envision 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. 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.

POLICY PRIORITIES
WE WORK IN PARTNERSHIP WITH YOUTH AND ADULT ALLIES ACROSS ILLINOIS TO: Increase access to and equity of adolescent sexual health care services. Increase access to and equity of sexuality education in schools and communities. Ensure support for pregnant and parenting youth to complete their educational goals.

LEADERSHIP TRANSITIONS PRESENT AN OPPORTUNITY FOR AN ORGANIZATION TO REFLECT ON WHERE IT HAS BEEN AND TO DREAM ABOUT A FUTURE PATH. In 2011, ICAH selected its new executive director, Yamani Hernandez, to lead ICAH into its next phase of work as a statewide, reproductive justice organization. Yamani embodies leadership qualities that are essential during this time of shrinking resources, increased political complexity, and continued need for comprehensive sexual health education, access to healthcare, and support for pregnant and parenting youth. Her passion and commitment to youth empowerment and reproductive justice, strategic vision, creativity, and collaborative leadership style have helped position ICAH for continued success. We are also pleased to have a highly engaged, smart, and talented Board of Directors with significant expertise in the health, education, and youth development fields. As we celebrated our 34th year, we were reminded of our history and founding in 1977 as the Illinois Caucus on Teenage Pregnancy, and the many ways in which ICAH has grown and responded to changing needs over the years. ICAH continues to think strategically about its operations as a statewide organization. We have shifted our School of Justice youth

programming model to create broader access for youth across the state of Illinois. We have increased our social media strategies to provide accurate sexual health information to young people, and trained youth in using social media for grassroots advocacy. We have developed new earned income streams by providing training to external organizations. ICAH is currently engaged in a strategic planning process to define our identity, to understand the best infrastructure needed for our work, and to develop a clear direction for the future. That means wrestling with difficult questions, engaging our young people, community partners, and supporters in a process of inquiry and analysis. We hope that you will participate in some of the upcoming opportunities to dialogue and provide input into our plan. The federal debate on birth control access and the politics of funding for reproductive healthcare are a harsh reminder of the urgency and importance of our work. We hope that you will join ICAH in supporting our youth leadership development, health education, and advocacy efforts to ensure that all young people have access to information and services to truly make informed decisions about their lives, health, and bodies.

LEADERSHIP

YAMANI HERNANDEZ EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

ICAH IS AN ORGANIZATION THAT HAS BEEN IN MY PSYCHE FOR THE LAST DECADE. I became involved as a board member in 2007 and when I joined the staff in an interim capacity in FY11 I had no idea how my life would change and how deep my commitment to reproductive justice for youth in Illinois would sink. Looking back to my interim period from January to June of 2011, I realized that even as a board member I could not adequately articulate the breadth and scope of ICAH until I was immersed in the work. Through bi-weekly deep dives into each program area at ICAH, we emerged with a re-structured, consolidated, and cross-functional operation and program delivery strategy that began piloting in FY12. It is hard to believe that a calendar year has passed. I officially took my post in August of 2011. Even amidst a leadership transition and massive culture change at ICAH, a tremendous amount has been accomplished by the stellar staff and revitalized board.

ICAH is boldly forging ahead. We began a strategic planning process in December that uncovered some critical areas of inquiry. We are excited to engage youth and adult allies, organizational partners, and the public in answering the questions that will chart our path over the next 3 years. However, I can say with utmost confidence that we are actively engaged in influencing the institutions and systems in Illinois that impact the sexual identities, health, and rights of young people in their authentic voice. We have extraordinary mentors and partners in organizations such as Advocates for Youth and Asian Communities for Reproductive Justice to advise, inform, and help implement our work. Finally, I can say with unfaltering certainty that the energy at ICAH is different than it has ever been. We are working collaboratively, with an asset-based and consensus driven approach that is making us more knowledgeable and stronger every day.

OUR STRATEGIES
TRAINING: Our training department
provides instruction and technical assistance throughout Illinois. Our objective is to expand and strengthen a statewide system of curricular and training resources to meet the increasing demand for adolescent sexual health education in schools and communities.

WELCOME SISTERS EMPOWERING SISTERS (SES)

finding stability with new members and a new plan of action for the year. SES chose ICAH as their sponsor organization because SES has spent the past two years shifting their focus to sexual health, creating an opportunity for alignment and partnership with ICAH as its new sponsor organization. The Sisters have become fierce sexual health activists, leading sexual health and media justice peer trainings across the Chicago area. Becoming a part of ICAH led SES to develop the medical accuracy of their workshops to parallel Illinois law and standards. Their Sex Ed and Media Justice trainings are stronger than ever, and have received high ratings from schools and programs. ICAH is helping SES build on that success and work more intentionally to reach broader audiences. Check out how members of SES feel about the transition to ICAH HERE.

nancy prevention research project funded by the Federal Administration for Child & Families (ACF) through the Department of Health and Human Services Personal Responsibility Education Program/Innovation Strategies Initiative. Throughout the year, ICAHs POWER Through Choices team has been working in collaboration with the Illinois Department of Child and Family Services; the Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy, which oversees project management; and the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, which is conducting the independent evaluation. The purpose of the multi-year project, which began in October 2010, is to provide a rigorous evaluation of the POWER Through Choices 2010 sexuality education curriculum. During Year 1, the POWER Through Choices 2010 Project was one of only seven of the 107 new federal pregnancy prevention projects selected to be part of the larger federal evaluation conducted with Washington, D.C.-based Mathematica Policy Research. ICAH is excited to be part of this groundbreaking research project and to have an opportunity to work for increased access to sexual health education and resources for young people in Illinois.

ADVOCATING FOR ACCURATE SEXUAL HEALTH EDUCATION

ICAH YOUTH at 2011 Lobby Day

THE SPRING OF 2011 WAS AN EXCITING TIME FOR ICAH AND THE REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH AND ACCESS (RHA) COALITION, AS WE INTRODUCED SB 1619, THE PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY EDUCATION PROGRAM (PREP) ACT, IN THE ILLINOIS SENATE.
FY2011

On March 30th 2011, we held our annual advocacy day at the State Capitol in Springfield in conjunction with the RHA Coalition. Nearly 200 people came to advocate on behalf of this bill, which was tailored after the national PREP Act, a key element of a multi-pronged federal strategy to reduce teenage pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and diseases (STDs). The premise of this bill in its latest form is to create a standard for existing sexual health courses that teach medically accurate, age-appropriate, and complete information, which includes information on reducing unintended pregnancies, STDs and STIs, stresses abstinence and applies to grades 6-12. Two ICAH youth members had an opportunity to speak at the rally held in the State Capitol Rotunda, as well as ICAH's Policy Director, Anita Banerji. ICAH engaged in focused outreach on behalf of the bill to State Legislators, as Banerji provided written testimony in favor of this bill at a committee hearing. We relied on our youth partnerships within our Illinois Youth Policy Council (IYPC) to make in-district meetings with targeted legislators throughout the spring, and we also supported efforts through email alerts and social media mobilization to spread the word to our statewide membership to contact their respective State Legislators to vote in favor of this bill. In addition, this bill would provide more streamlined access to information and resources regarding comprehensive sexual health education for students in grades 6-12 in Illinois public schools. When the bill reached the Illinois House in late spring, it was changed to a House Bill, HB 3027, with a title change to the Accurate Sexual Health Education Bill. The premise of this bill in its latest form is to create a standard for existing sexual health courses that teach medically accurate, age-appropriate, and complete information, which includes information on reducing unintended pregnancies and STDs and STIs, stresses abstinence and applies to grades 6-12. ICAH continued online advocacy efforts to reach our membership throughout the summer, when the bill got an extension. In the fall, we participated in a community forum hosted by the Chicago Urban League and the RHA Coalition, where one of our youth leaders spoke on behalf of the importance of the bill for our youth. During in-district lobby week in October, one of our ICAH Board members and Policy Committee Co-chair, Noam Ostrander wrote an op-ed regarding this significant bill, which we disseminated to print media. The bill is currently stalled in the Illinois House, and we continue to do outreach.

AFTER TWO YEARS OF THE SCHOOL OF JUSTICE (SOJ) PROGRAM BEING A WEEKLY CHICAGO-BASED PROGRAM FOR 25 YOUNG PEOPLE, FY11 BEGAN THE CONCEPTION OF A NEW PROGRAM DELIVERY STRATEGY TO BE IMPLEMENTED IN FY12. In an effort to reach more youth across Illinois, School of Justice is an umbrella entry-point and foundational program of ICAH that provides the space and training for young people to: develop their knowledge about sexual health education, increase leadership skills, and mobilize their peers and adult-allies to transform the communities and institutions that impact their realities. All of this work is supported by the leadership of youth aged 14-21 who are passionate about sexual health and/or issues affecting pregnant and parenting youth. We work with youth as partners committed to making social change. While partnering with organizations like Springfield's Urban League and East St. Louis' Parenting for Success, SOJ has become ICAH's largest youth program, comprised of 80 young people from across Illinois, that meets five times a year in person through three-day intensive leadership training convenings that focus on leadership building, social justice issues and the relevance of these issues in their communities. SOJ employs tactics through new media strategies, such as social media outlets like Facebook, You Tube and Twitter for youth to reach their peers directly for dissemination of information, conversation and base-building. Through SOJ youth are able so focus more deeply on organizing around a specific campaign on an reproductive justice issue area that addresses ICAH's policy priorities.

ICAH RAISES MORE THAN $15,000 AT THE AFC AIDS RUN/WALK


MORE THAN 7,000 PARTICIPANTS BANNED TOGETHER OCTOBER 1, 2011 FOR THE ANNUAL AIDS FOUNDATION OF CHICAGOS AIDS RUN & WALK. The cold weather did not prevent the multiple community teams, corporate teams, open teams, college teams, and high school teams from supporting those living with HIV/AIDS. The Chicago run and walk raised an estimated $500,000 for the cause. Early Saturday morning October 1, 2011, more than 80 ICAH youth and adult allies marched together in support of the AIDS Foundation of Chicago (AFC) AIDS Run & Walk 2011. 2011 has been Team ICAHs most successful fundraising effort yet, raising more than $15,000 through direct donations, team recruitment, and registration. This was the first year our team has crossed the $10,000 goal threshold for ICAH to qualify for additional grant funding from the AIDS Foundation of Chicago and more than doubled the number of team members over last years count. ICAH was the second highest raising team.

SCHOOL BOARD POLICY (SBP) MODEL FOR LOCAL POLICY CHANGE


IN FISCAL YEAR 2011, THE THREE-YEAR SCHOOL BASED POLICY (SBP) PROJECT THAT ICAH HAD EMBARKED ON CAME TO AN OFFICIAL CLOSE, BUT NOT BEFORE LEAVING A MARK WITHIN THE SCHOOL DISTRICTS OF FREEPORT, MAYWOOD AND JOLIET. This project focused on evaluation of these communities' school board sexual health education policies. ICAH's youth-adult partnerships were expounded through this project, as youth came to the table to raise their voices in regards to the complete, accurate information they felt necessary for their adolescent sexual health development.
In fall of 2010, ICAH youth leaders educated approximately 100 parents regarding adolescent sexual health, health and relationships, and communication with youth around these topics at a parent resource fair. In spring of 2011, youth leaders planned and participated in a student health fair at Proviso East High School, where they disseminated information about medically accurate sexual health education to their peers. These SBP youth leaders continued their leadership development through a retreat designed to strengthen their capacity to actively participate in health programming and mobilization of community folks through the SBP model for sexual health education policy change. ICAH youth leaders also had the opportunity to present at national conferences, the Healthy Teen Network and the National Assembly for School Based Health Centers, with ICAH staff on how to mobilize community through this SBP model.

NEW MEDIA: ICAH is aggressively ramping up its new-media presence and strategies as the most direct way to reach young people with sex-ed content and spur dialogue with the public. From the refresh of our website, to the nationally praised NYT article launch of a text, website, Facebook and Twitter campaign, ICAH is excited to chart new territory in reaching youth throughout Illinois in the ways that they communicate best.

12 THINGS TO WATCH IN 2 O 1 2
In the calendar year of 2012, ICAH is spotlighting 12 critical things that define our work and how we do it. Existing and new priorities will take the focus, and all are meaningful approaches to advance our reproductive justice work with and for young people throughout Illinois. They represent the theory, logic, and practice of radically changing the landscape of adolescent health in Illinois. Follow us on this journey.

ILLINOIS CAUCUS FOR ADOLESCENT HEALTH

forward stance [for ward stance] (n):
Forward stance is a mind-body approach that cultivates erce individuals, effective organizations and powerful movement that strengthen our families and communities.

2
PPY: ICAH is strengthening our commitment to authentically advocating and serving the unique needs of pregnant and parenting youth. We are actively recruiting young mothers and FATHERS to our programs, creating alliances with organizations that can help de-stigmatize the young parent, supporting policies that increase their access to services and programs that allow them to participate and succeed as equal members of society, and raising their voices as natural leaders, who can succeed in spite of the odds.

FORWARD STANCE: ICAH is working hard to acknowledge the totality of health, the connections of sexual health to broader well- being and the importance of mind-body-spirit connection in the work that we do. We are looking forward to increasing our competencies in this Asian Communities for Reproductive Justice (ACRJ) model and incorporate self-care plans for youth and staff into our work. We practice yoga as a staff weekly and center our bodies and minds as preparation and management for the emotional toils of activism.

INCREASING MALE ENGAGEMENT: ICAH is exploring the ways to better engage male-identified youth and allies in reproductive justice work. We understand that there are unique needs of young men in our programs in how they receive information, feel valued and productive in our work to dismantle oppression and rebuild new realities for the sexual health of young women and men in Illinois. We are keeping their voices and other male-identified allies at the center, as we continue quarterly discussions on this topic.

STANDARDS : ICAH is working to support and promote clear, consistent, and straightforward guidance on the essential minimum, core content for sexuality education that is developmentally and age-appropriate for students in grades Kindergarten through grade 12 through the newly released Sexual Health Standards.

ABCD & STATEWIDE REACH: ICAH aims to increase and fortify its statewide reach through engaging with the Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) model to partner with the local organizations that are doing sexual health work throughout the state. By strengthening these partnerships, we are able to not just "take an ICAH show on the road" throughout the state, but become true collaborators and work smarter not harder at expanding our research to the youth and providers who need us most. Further, we are adopting the spirit of ABCD in applying an asset based lens to every aspect of our work, as we investigate and celebrate the assets of the people, places and institutions that we work with to navigate change.

1 in 3 CAMPAIGN: ICAH vigilantly promotes access to sexual health education and contraception to lessen the degree of pregnancy in young people. However, for youth who find themselves pregnant, we advocate equally for the right to choose to parent, as we do for the right to safe supportive access, and de-stigmatization of the choice of abortion. We understand that these authentic conversations are necessary.

STRATEGIC PLANNING: ICAH is deeply engaged in a self-examination process that involves staff, board, youth and the public! We have identified 16 areas of inquiry and are at hard at work at surveying, round-tabling, asking and answering hard questions about who we serve and how. We are looking both internally and externally to powerful models and partners to learn what we do best and where we need to grow. Please join our mailing list for calls on how you can participate.

10

ONLINE SEXUAL HEALTHCARE TOOLKIT: ICAH is working hard to promote the online Adolescent Sexual Health Toolkit as a centralized resource of the latest information on sexual health issues for school health teachers, nurses, counselors, public health officials, community health workers, and other adolescent service providers. It presents extensive information and resources for use with students and public health clients: prevention strategies, fact sheets, journal articles, websites, innovative strategies, data, recommended curricula, and much more.

ADVOCACY: ICAH will continue to promote HB 3027, the Accurate Sexual Health Education bill and HB 5290, the Anti-Bullying in Schools Bill, introduced in the Illinois House this winter. This bill would amend the Illinois School Code in provisions concerning bullying prevention. ICAH is also promoting a bill regarding supports for pregnant and parenting youth, HB 5628, which was also introduced in the Illinois House this winter. We are working to support a portfolio of legislation that addresses our policy priorities directly and indirectly through many national allied issues. For example, working with Advocates for Youth and Sister Song, as well as the National Womens Law Center on letters of support for birth control, sound fiscal budgeting for maternal and child health programs, keeping students who are pregnant and parenting youth in school to complete their high schools degrees, as well as HIV/AIDS funding.

VOTE

11

INCREASING YOUTH LEADERSHIP: ICAH understands the central question of reproductive justice is "nothing about us without us." To this end, we choose not to advocate "for" youth of Illinois without their voice present in all aspects of our operations. We are working to increase opportunities for youth to participate in all aspects of our work (training, advocacy and mobilizing), but also through the leadership of the organization with board committees, public facilitation of important events, meetings and committees.

MARGINS TO CENTER: From our internal strategies with youth and ICAH staff to external strategies with providers and the public, ICAH is working hard to live out the values of Reproductive Justice and raise the authentic voices of the most marginalized youth. From actively participating in the gender neutral bathroom campaign, actively recruiting and supporting LGBTQI youth, immigrant youth and youth with disabilities, to increasing our professional competencies, such as transally training, we are working to elevate our practice of Reproductive Justice.
