More than 120 participants from across the country joined the inaugural HIV Prevention Justice Alliance (HIV PJA) conference call on April 30 to unite efforts on a national advocacy agenda reframing HIV prevention work around social determinants, social interventions and human rights. A recording of the call and notes are available here.

In May and June, we will continue to hold HIV PJA recruitment calls to share information, solicit input, and share key analysis and activities moving forward the Prevention Justice Agenda. We will hold our first Membership call in July.

PLEASE NOTE: Organizations that join the HIV PJA by May 31 will be considered Founding Members!Click here to become a member.

Here is the agenda for our May call:

  • Introductions
  • Launching the HIV PJA: Updates and Discussion
  • Guest Speakers:
    • Lynn C. Todman, PhD, Director of the Institute of Social Exclusion (ISE) at the Adler School of Professional Psychology, Chicago
      Dr. Todman will discuss the ways in which social, political, and economic structures systematically marginalize urban populations to help us further explain the relationship between poverty and HIV.
    • Marisa Franco, National Lead Organizer, Right to the City Alliance
      Ms. Franco will discuss the Alliance's work as grassroots leaders in low-income, working class communities of color connecting battles against gentrification and displacement to other local and international struggles for human rights, land, and democracy.
    • Jaime Grant, Ph.D., Director of the Policy Institute at the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force (NGLTF)
      Dr. Grant will talk about how the exclusion of LGBT people from the national Census invisibilizes LGBT poverty and supports marginalization that can lead to health disparities and social injustice.
  • Wrap up and next steps
