Girl Talk at NYU!

On Wednesday, November 3, AACAA partnered with New York University's Organization of Black Women to host our first "Girl Talk" with our new Winter Fellow, Ericka. About 20 African American female students at NYU came together for a couple of hours to openly and honestly talk about sex. The "Girl Talk" project is an effort to promote dialogue about sexual health and empowerment amongst African American women. Through dialogue, participants begin to build a community of women who can work together to learn from each other about sex and sexual health. Next friday, the students will be passing out condoms on the streets of Downtown Brooklyn and then having a dinner so they can continue their conversation about sex.

We are excited about hosting more Girl Talks in the future!
