AIDS United will be holding a Southern REACH convening on September 9-10, 2014, in Raleigh, North Carolina. At this convening, CHLP's Legal Director, Ivan Espinoza-Madrigal, will be presenting in a workshop titled, "Understanding the HIV Epidemic in the South within the Context of Racial Justice." This workshop will address the disproportionate impact of the HIV epidemic on people of color in the South; explore ways to tackle racial inequities; and provide strategies to strengthen the racial justice analysis in HIV-related work streams.
The Center for HIV Law and Policy is a national resource and advocacy organization working to advance the rights of people affected by HIV. We combine an online HIV Policy Resource Bank, a creative national advocacy agenda, and case assistance focused on systems and institutions with significant impact on marginalized communities.
