Special events and outreach
As part of our commitment to raising awareness about LGBTQ health issues, sexual health and HIV/STI prevention, and other issues impacting the populations we serve, Mazzoni Center’s community engagement and outreach team performs education and outreach work in a variety of settings and contexts.
Our street outreach team is regularly found canvassing various Philadelphia neighborhoods, bars, clubs, and other venues, where they engage people in conversation about safer sex, HIV and STI risk, and give out safer sex kits and referral information to those who are interested. The outreach team also performs this service at special events and community festivals, including OutFest and Philadelphia Gay Pride.
Our staff is also available for tabling, educational and informational presentations at community health fairs and other public events.*

*please note that our ability to participate in outside events is dependent on staff availability and other scheduling considerations.
