Join the RiseUp to HIV Campaign


A Video Blog

By Justin B. Terry-Smith

January 27, 2013

The campaign and how to join:

This is a global, public campaign inspired by Chelsea Clinton raising awareness by holding a simple sign for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria. My vision for this campaign is to mobilize people in places across the United States and the World willing to stand up to Stigma and Rise Up To HIV, all in an effort of realizing the UN Goals of getting to ZERO. The biggest barrier I believe to realizing these goals is STIGMA.

On Facebook: simply tag RiseUpToHIV with your photo and a sentence or two about yourself, or a bio if you have one.

On Twitter: You can tweet an image and sentence to @RiseUpToHIV.

If you are good with Photoshop or any other editing software you may submit a photo of yourself with the words No Shame About Being HIV Positive.

If you are not on Facebook or on twitter you can e-mail your photo to kevin@riseuptohiv.org.

Here is a link to the album of those who have already participated (82 as of 1/16/2012)
