On May 18, CHLP's S. Mandisa Moore-O’Neal joins Linda Dixon and Cornelius Mabin in co-presenting workshop entitled, "The Violence is the Point: How Sexual Health Inequities and the Criminal Legal System Conspire and Oppress." This workshop will review the landscape of laws that criminalize communicable disease exposure and nondisclosure against the backdrop of our current political climate. The panelists will uplift personal experience, legal analysis, and abolitionist guiding principles to unpack intersecting forms of state violence, and propose radical responses to them.

The National Coalition of STD Directors (NCSD) is the nation’s membership organization for STI professionals. STD Engage is known as the place for STI professionals to hear from national leaders – government officials, researchers, and clinicians – as well as their own peers.
