Press Release

Save the Date! HIV Is Not a Crime II National Training Academy, May 17-20, 2016, Huntsville, Alabama

January 5, 2016

HIV Is Not a Crime

After a very successful inaugural HIV Is Not a Crime National Conference last year, the SERO Project and Positive Women's Network - USA are pleased to announce that the HIV Is Not a Crime II National Training Academy will be held May 17-20, 2016, at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. The second national conference is designed to support repeal and modernization of laws criminalizing HIV non-disclosure, perceived or potential exposure and transmission.

HIV Is Not a Crime II will unite and train advocates living with HIV and allies from across the country on laws criminalizing people living with HIV and on strategies and best practices for repealing such laws. Skills-building training, with an emphasis on grassroots organizing, advocacy, coalition-building and campaign planning, will leave participants with concrete tools and resources to work on state-level strategies when they return home.

Scholarship applications are available here and must be submitted with a letter of support by February 5, 2016. Please note that only complete applications will be reviewed. Your application will be evaluated and scored by volunteer reviewers on the Scholarship Committee, and you will receive an email response to your application by March 11, 2016.

Please stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks and months.
