Condoms in Downtown BK
On Friday, November 12, AACAA sponsored a group of 9 African American female NYU students to distribute over 5,000 condoms to people in Downtown Brooklyn & Fort Greene. This distribution event was a follow-up from the Girl Talk AACAA held at NYU a couple of weeks ago. Passing out condoms on the street felt both empowering for the volunteers as well as for the community because at least for that moment, we were able to take sex and condom usage from being private, secretive topics to being a public issue. Many people stopped and thanked the volunteers for their efforts. We ended the day with a wonderful meal at Il Porto restaurant in Brooklyn, where we continued our discussion about sex and sexual health.
