Please join us for information and dialogue on these topics:
The HIV Prevention Justice Alliance -- Our Next Steps as a Coalition
The HIV PJA was founded in 2009 by CHAMP, AIDS Foundation of Chicago and SisterLove. And with your help, we've seen success in mobilization, issue framing, coalition-building and strategic communications.
We want to take a moment to talk about our plans for the next steps of our coalition -- including a steering committee, new working groups, an improved website and blog, and development of a policy agenda -- and learn more from you about how we can better support your work as HIV prevention justice leaders.
Join us for an update, then please share your ideas ... and remember, you can sign up right now for our 2 new online strategy lists to stimulate advocacy and inspire each other to fight for change in the United States -- the new HIV PJA Strategy email list and the SLICK email list (State/Local Info-Share for Community Knowledge).
Bringing It Back to Atlanta -- the 2011 National HIV Prevention Conference
The HIV Prevention Justice movement hit the streets for the first time at the 2007 National HIV Prevention Conference.
Now, the 3,000+ person gathering is about to happen again, for the first time since the release of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy, and as we await a new strategic plan on HIV prevention from CDC ...
The HIV PJA will be there -- as will many of you.
So what should we do together to make the most of the conference as an opportunity for prevention justice? We know we're going to throw another legendary dance party ... but what else : )
Southern Stories: Case Studies in HIV Prevention Justice
The Southeastern United States is bearing a big share of new HIV incidence. But localities and states have been slow to respond, and/or hampered by widespread economic injustice, social bias and overlapping health challenges.
But vibrant campaigns -- for sterile syringe access, for the human rights of sex workers, and more -- are pushing back against bad policies and paving the way for more effective HIV prevention in the region.
Join us to learn more about these efforts and engage in strategic dialogue with representatives of powerful campaigns for HIV prevention justice in the Southeastern U.S.
