The Emerging Political Landscape for HIV Prevention Justice under the Obama Administration

As the first months of the new Congress and Obama Administration draw to a close, is there light at the end of the HIV/AIDS prevention tunnel?

After years of the desk sitting empty, we now have a well-respected AIDS advocate serving as head of the Office of National AIDS Policy. The head of FDA is a needle- exchange fan. The new and rearranged members of Congress have found their footing, and already have beaten back proposals to keep funding abstinence-only.

But can the changes we need happen in a time of economic turmoil and competing priorities?

New avenues of power are being formed, and this panel will help you learn how to navigate them effectively as advocates for HIV Prevention Justice.  

Join CHAMP & The Center for analysis and discussion with organizers among leaders in policy analysis and advocacy.

Speakers Include:
Kelly Castagnaro - International Women's Health Coalition
Allan Clear - Harm Reduction Coalition
Myisha Patterson-Gatson - Black AIDS Institute

Kali Lindsey - National Association of People living with AIDS
