Positive Organizing Project (POP)
Positive Organizing Project, supported by Gilead Sciences, is designed to revitalize a grass-roots organizing movement among people living with HIV and AIDS (PLWHA) that impacts HIV-related stigma, raises education and awareness among policy makers, and indirectly improves outcomes along the continuum of care. The program supports local organizing efforts to address stigma and engagement in care. This is being accomplished by (1) revitalizing the movement of HIV-positive mobilization in local communities, and (2) ensuring synergistic efforts that help us document models that are effective in achieving organizing goals, and can be shared and scaled elsewhere.
The Power of Positive Voices - Webinar
The Power of Positive Voices, a webinar co-hosted with The US People Living with HIV Caucus, explored the history and value of meaningful involvement of people living with HIV in the national response to the epidemic. Viewers learned about the impact that HIV-positive involvement can have from the front lines of advocacy and peer services to the leadership of community organizations, Legacy Community Health Services' shared lessons learned from their own positive organizing work, and an introduction to a new funding opportunity from AIDS United for those interested in starting or growing their own positive organizing efforts.
