Join the RiseUp to HIV Campaign
A Video Blog

By Justin B. Terry-Smith

January 27, 2013

The campaign and how to join:

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.
