Cartoons Aren’t Just for Kids – Using Animation to Inform about HIV

With all the great experiences and memories made throughout our AmeriCorps service year at our agencies and in our community, Team New Mexico (Albuquerque-Santa Fe) wanted to create a Long Term Project (LTP) that would continue beyond this year for future audiences and teams to experience.

Raising Awareness of HIV in Indianapolis

Raising Awareness in Indianapolis With PrEP being such a significant development in HIV prevention, the AIDS United AmeriCorps Team in Indianapolis hosted an event to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS prevention and PrEP for our Long Term Project. PrEP (Pre-exposure Prophylaxis), a daily pill that can reduce risk of HIV infection, is not something that is discussed very much in Indianapolis outside of the medical community. We wanted to use our Long Term Project as an opportunity to reach the general population.

Team Atlanta Makes it Cool to Care about HIV Prevention

These events were eye opening for us because we were able to really get into the community and converse with other young people face-to-face. There is a great need for the HIV testing and counseling services we provide, and personally speaking, I think the students appreciated that we’re not just professionals; we’re their peers too. We’re at similar points in our lives, and we’re able to connect with them as young people who care about our health and our community. In essence, we make it cool to care!

Beyond Testing: Empowering Women to Pursue Healthy Lives

While I still have a lot to learn and do during my service, I appreciate each moment with my clients. I am part of a conversation; an exploration of a complex yet often overlooked human experience. While subtle, I can see that I am offering something beyond testing – I’m offering dignity, a break from fear, from the unknown, and from stigma.

A Conversation with Jennifer Sinkfield, AmeriCorps Alum

I have been surrounded by women empowerment and education my entire life. My mother is a women empowerment leader. She spent a lot of time working in domestic violence and helping women when my sister and I were growing up. Being exposed to that, I have gravitated towards working with and empowering women myself.

Women Matter

In the United States, one in four people living with HIV are women. Of these women, two out of three are Black. HIV affects all of us. Understanding the overall effect of HIV on society, especially as a Black Woman, motivates me to work in the fight and add to the momentum of change. National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is an opportunity to acknowledge the importance of woman’s health and spotlight the need for HIV prevention and treatment services for women.

Bridging the Divide: Continuing in the Legacy of Dr. King

The AIDS United AmeriCorps DC Team spent the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service cleaning up Anacostia Park, one of DC’s largest public parks along the Anacostia River. We joined 450 volunteers from the DC area in a group event organized by the Student Conservation Association (SCA). In spite of freezing temperatures, we managed to collect over 15 tons of waste, improving the health of the park and making the space an even nicer one for residents to enjoy.
