candies foundationCampaigns such as #NoTeenPreg, launched by the Candies Foundation, present young mothers as inherently problematic – to themselves, their families, and their communities.

The campaign proliferates messages like, “You’re supposed to be changing the world, not changing diapers,” as if teen moms are incapable of influencing positive change.

The Candies Foundation isn’t the first organization to shame young parents and unfortunately it won’t be the last.
