Continued Inaction in Washington Compounds Suffering for People of Puerto Rico

Shortly before sunrise on Thursday, President Trump once again took to Twitter, renewing his attacks on the American citizens of Puerto Rico while threatening to cut off aid to the U.S. territory. Placing the blame for the suffering incurred in the wake of Hurricane Maria entirely on the inhabitants and government of Puerto Rico while touting his administration’s response, Trump tweeted that the United States government, “cannot keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been amazing (under the most difficult circumstances) in P.R. forever!”

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.

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.

Authenticity in Leadership

What is a leader? This was a question discussed at great length at AIDS United’s inaugural “Emerging Female Leaders Workshop” in San Juan, Puerto Rico in mid-August 2014. AIDS United (AU) invited ten women who have managerial or executive experience at community-based organizations and have demonstrated a passion and commitment to ending HIV/AIDS in Puerto Rico.

Success! Emerging Female Leaders Workshop

I had the amazing opportunity to participate in a two-day leadership workshop in San Juan, PR for HIV/AIDS service providers from around the island. The Workshop was made possible by a generous grant from AIDS United. Our gathering was a huge success—10 female leaders from ten organizations attended. The days were packed, but much was accomplished.
