A panel consisting of young and old alike will speak out on the topic “Sex, What They Don’t Tell You.  Why Wait for Marriage?”.  The forum is part of the 6th annual celebration of Abstinence Awareness Week in Washington, DC from March 6 to March 12, 2011.

“It’s a matter of life and death,” said Richard Urban, executive director of ULTRA Teen Choice, a local non-profit that helps youth succeed in life by encouraging abstinence from sex before marriage and abstinence from drugs and alcohol. He is referring to an HIV/AIDS epidemic in the District, where, he reports, 2.5 percent of black females and 7.1 percent of black males are infected with the virus.

Tara White, author of “Don’t Curse Your Wedding Bed Before You Say I Do,” has been tapped as the speaker for the forum, to be held March 7 at Mt. Bethel Baptist Church, 75 Rhode Island Ave. NW. The newly ordained minister is on a mission to help singles understand the value of abstinence.  “One of the reasons I wrote “Don’t Curse Your Wedding Bed Before You say I Do,” is to make singles people aware of the pitfalls that I went through,” she says.  The forum is scheduled to start with a reception with refreshments at 5:30 p.m. and the program will begin at 6 p.m.
