I hope your spring semester is getting off to a great start! As a reminder, we still have meetings every week on Wednesdays at 8 PM in the Dodge Room of Earl Hall. If you’re looking for a new way to get involved this semester, we have a lot of events in the works like call-ins to legislators, lobbying visits, writing op-eds, and actions. We would love to have your input at meetings!
See below for info about a great discussion happening on Wednesday evening — join Lambda Pi Chi and Omega Psi Phi to learn more about the AIDS epidemic and its current, very disproportionate effects on communities. A very important discussion to have, as the AIDS epidemic is not over within the US, either. I hope you’ll attend!
Stay tuned for CUSGAC events coming up soon!

2. While young people are only 16% of the population, people under the age of 25 represent an estimated 50% of all new HIV infections. The majority of these cases are contracted sexually.
3. Black and Hispanic women account for only 29% of the New York female population, but together they represent 86% of New York women living with HIV/AIDS.
