Distributing Condoms and Hope : The Racialized Politics of Youth Sexual Health

Distributing Condoms and Hope is a feministethnographic account of how youth sexual health programs in the racially and economically stratified city of "Millerston" reproduce harm in the marginalized communities they are meant to serve.

Chris A. Barcelos makes space for the stories of young mothers, who often recognize the narrow ways that public health professionals respond to pregnancies. Barcelos's findings show that teachers, social workers, and nurses ignore systemic issues of race, class, and gender and instead advocate for individual-level solutions such as distributing condoms and promoting 'hope.' Through a lens of reproductive justice, Distributing Condoms and Hope imagines a different approach to serving marginalized youth-a support system that neither uses their lives as a basis for disciplinary public policies nor romanticizes their struggles.
