The Problem

High HIV/STI/teen pregnancy rates among Black/Latino youth in the Capital District, NY

Plan of Action

Use technology to help raise awareness, provide risk reduction information to teens, and help address social norms that impact on risk behaviors among Black/Latino teens. We create videos that look at some of those social norms, like girls carrying condoms get a bad rep or if you test for HIV/STIs then you must "have something", and then create cartoons, videos, music, social media campaigns, even PSAs, that help change those social norms. We also hand out safer sex supplies and role model stories to our friends, family members, and peers in our community.
