Apply to the Great American Condom Campaign!

Are you a college student in the US who’s concerned about a lack of access to safer sex supplies on your campus? Our friends at Advocates for Youth are once again accepting applications to be a Great American Condom Campaign SafeSite. Some info about the program:

The Great American Condom Campaign is a youth-led grassroots movement to reduce unintended pregnancies and the spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections by normalizing condom use on college and university campuses. Students from across the country apply to become SafeSites, individual condom distribution points, and receive a box of 500 Trojan condoms to distribute to their peers. SafeSites are also tasked with educating their peers about safer sex and advocating on campus and within their community for the sexual and reproductive health rights of young adults.

Free condoms can be a great tool to use in college organizing (beyond, ya know, the safer sex thing). They’re a great way to attract people to your event, get them to your table to sign a petition, and even recruit them to be more involved in organizing.

Applications are open to be a Spring Semester SafeSite until January 3rd, so click here to apply today!
