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.

Southern REACH: Pushing the Nation Forward

Working on the Southern REACH portfolio the last five years has been inspiring. Over time I have seen the cohort become smaller but stronger! It’s been encouraging to see organizations in the South come together to build networks, move policy forward, and mobilize and engage to make real policy change. This level of mobilization and engagement has yielded real policy change and improved the lives of people living with HIV. For example, North Carolina Harm Reduction Coalition has worked tirelessly to legalize syringe exchanges in their state, and after years of hard work, their advocacy paid off big time when Governor McCrory signed a bill that legalized syringe exchange, on July 11th, 2016. In fact, North Carolina lawmakers made history by becoming the first veto-proof Republican super majority to legalize syringe exchange programs. This victory matters, it will change lives, and it is exactly what Southern REACH grantees do every day.

Christina Adeleke, communications and development coordinator at North Carolina AIDS Action Network, and Nic Carlisle, executive director at Southern AIDS Coalition, shared some success and challenges to addressing HIV in the South during an interview with Chris Fitzsimmon, as part of NC Policy Watch's News and Views series. Adeleke and Carlisle explained that despite significant policy victories such as the Affordable Care Act and landmark scientific advancements that make living well with HIV possible, "the South is in danger of being left behind."

Science Alone Can't Create a Just World

I often talk about what it was like testing HIV-positive in 1992, when the only treatment available was AZT. Today, I consider the bounty of treatments available and the many more in development. I think of what science has done for me, this field, and for so many others like me. Yet science alone can’t create a just world. In its purest form, science can be cold, calculated, and simply focused on what can be proven true or false. Science has delivered both cures and bombs, has been used for both good and bad. While science has the potential to fix much of what ails us — it won’t work for the advancement of us all without being firmly steeped in and led by our values.
