HIV Is Not a Crime: Anti-Blackness and HIV Criminalization
Wednesday, Aug. 17, 3:30 p.m. - 5 p.m. ET
Recent research has shown there are specifically racist and anti-black dimensions to HIV epidemiology, as well as the criminalization of HIV. We have also seen that these laws disproportionately impact black people and black communities. During this webinar we will define what anti-blackness means in connection to HIV criminalization laws and discuss why and how HIV laws tend to be anti-black.
HIV Is Not a Crime: Immigration and HIV Decriminalization
Wednesday, Aug. 24, 3:30 p.m. - 5 p.m. ET
Foreign-born citizens and those who come to this country seeking a better life in the U.S. frequently encounter challenges due to their immigration status. This is especially true for those living with HIV. This webinar will touch on intersectional issues of being an immigrant living with HIV and HIV criminalization. We will also discuss the synergy of the movement to end deportations and the movement to end the AIDS epidemic.
HIV Is Not a Crime: Criminalization's Impact on Trans Communities
Wednesday, Aug. 31, 3:30 p.m. - 5 p.m. ET
Transgender rights have gained more mainstream attention but transgender people are still disproportionately criminalized. This webinar will discuss many of the challenges trans people face and highlight the stories of trans people who are fighting to eradicate new transmissions in the transgender community.
