Condom Nation Tour is a serious, yet somewhat whimsical and creative effort by AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) to help promote increased condom use and to help make condoms more accessible and affordable. AHF’s Condom Nation Tour 18 wheel truck will arrive in NY the week of June 10th for Brooklyn Pride.

Every spring, CCO organizes a campus-wide day of volunteering in the greater NYC area. Typically, CCO has over 1,000 volunteers- students, faculty, alumni, and community members- who work on more than forty projects.
