On Thursday, May 21, CHLP's Amir Sadeghi appeared in the webinar Examining Black Women's Health at the Intersection of HIV, IPV, and the Criminal Legal System. The webinar was hosted by the Missouri HIV Justice Coalition and Reproaction and featured a conversation with educators and advocates on the impact of HIV and HIV stigma on Black women's health and well-being.

This discussion was moderated by Molly Pearson, HIV Justice Organizer at Empower Missouri, and Evonnia Woods, Missouri Organizer at Reproaction.
The Center for HIV Law and Policy challenges barriers to the rights and health of people affected by HIV through legal advocacy, high-impact policy initiatives, and creation of cross-issue partnerships, networks, and resources. We support movement building that amplifies the power of individuals and communities to mobilize for change that is rooted in racial, gender, and economic justice.
