Fordham OUTLaws created this postcard to raise awareness about the FDA’s discriminatory ban on MSM (men who have sex with men) donating blood. 

We partnered with the NY Blood Center, who is currently hosting a blood drive today in Fordham Law School’s atrium to pass out the cards to donors. In addition, we’ve distributed them in classrooms and common areas in the law school.
