We approach our advocacy as a matter of human dignity, human rights, and social justice. We wish to conceptualize HIV policy issues and innovate community-based solutions to those issues from the grassroots up. In order to meaningfully address the impact of HIV/AIDS and other sexual and reproductive oppression on Black, Indigenous and other People-of-Color women, children, men, and non-binary and others, we center the experiences of those directly impacted by the epidemic and the social determinants of health that shape their health outcomes.
Our Advocacy Areas are broad and expansive and include:
HIV/AIDS PREVENTION TREATMENT AND CARE
We identify and mobilize a broad base of women and youth living with and affected by HIV/AIDS and other forms of reproductive oppression, through education, outreach, and public engagement.
We inform public debate on reproductive justice issues by producing intersectional policy writing intended to elevate diverse stakeholders’ understanding through online, print, radio, and television news sources.
PUBLIC EDUCATION & ADVOCACY
We conduct campaigns to connect the public to pressing reproductive justice issues, using the power of social media, the press, and other communications outlets.
We speak at universities and with local community and religious groups to elevate our communities’ voices and a justice-based framework in order to create a community better able to respond to structural inequity and oppression.
