National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day: Recognizing Our Resilience

THis National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Dayoffers a national platform to not only re-focus the nation’s attention on the toll this disease has had on the African American community, but to also elevate the dialogue around the issues that are the drivers of HIV infection rates in our communities. But while so much of the discussion around race and HIV seems to conjure up negative perceptions about people in the communities most impacted, today I want to pose a more positive framing for the discussion. We must recognize and trust in the resilience and abilities of Black and brown people lead the way in identifying and applying strategies to end HIV in our communities.

Continuing Forward: Leadership For Now

I got a call in May 2016. “Jesse we are searching for the interim President & CEO of AIDS United…. Are you interested?” Without missing a heartbeat, I thought to myself, “You must do this – now!” My life changed immediately. I could never have predicted all the other changes coming in 2016. For all of us living with, working for, and affected by HIV in America, 2016 was a year of unexpected change.

My Voice Can Affect Change

I got to be a part of AIDSWatch through a scholarship provided by the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation. This one event has changed my life in so many ways and has given me the confidence to speak out against the stigma that is placed upon people with HIV/AIDS and how budget cuts on programs that help fund housing, medicine, and education affect not only me, but others living with HIV/AIDS.

A First-Time Peek from the Hill at AIDSWatch 2017

The energy of the tribe of my fellow HIV advocates at AIDSWatch 2017 echoed the heartbeat of those we have lost from the beginning of the epidemic. I was honored to walk to halls of the Capitol building and speak for those lives, my life with every congressperson and staffer I met. Our collective voices together are the rhythm of that heartbeat that will spark change and become a deafening war cry to our legislators if they don’t listen to us.

Peer Support: A Critical Piece of the Puzzle

Peers play a critical role in the care of people living with HIV and helping them navigate their health care. This fall, AIDS United began an initiative through HRSA’s Special Projects of National Significance replicating four linkage and retention in care interventions, one on which focuses specifically on the integration of peer support for women of color living with HIV.
