Fighting the Stigma
With approximately 50,000 new cases of HIV in the United States each year, it's time we start talking. Join our program as we educate ourselves on HIV/AIDS, the resource disparities faced by certain demographics who are combatingthe infection, and the stigmas that the HIV/Aids community face often preventing these important conversations. Learning alongside The Jerusalem House, a permanent housing facility for individuals living with HIV/AIDS, and Someone Cares Inc., we are excited for a week of immersion into action, advocacy, and education.
