Happy Condom Week!

20 Feb. 2012 Posted by Alexandra Berauer in the 12:21 Project

I recently found out this week (February 14-21) is National Condom Week, in honor of St. Valentine no doubt. We didn't plan our advocacy visits to coincide with the occasion, but we figured we should acknowledge the festivities in our meetings. So we started by asking how it is that with a federally-funded, nationwide campaign and statewide, mandatory comprehensive sex education that teaches every middle-schooler in California where to get and how to use a condom, STD rates are going through the roof?
