SERO Project

In May the SERO Project, partnering with Positive Women's Network - USA, hosted HIV Is Not a Crime II, the second national conference focused on HIV criminalization. Almost 300 people from 34 states and four countries traveled to Huntsville, Alabama, to learn about HIV criminalization laws, talk about experiences with criminalization, and discuss strategies and skills to make change around these stigmatizing laws and practices when they got back home. Exactly as intended, the majority of attendees were people living with HIV.
