Positive Justice Project State Working Group Application

The Positive Justice Project (PJP) is currently working to end HIV criminalization in states across the country. PJP working groups are leading the modernization efforts in many of these states. If you are interested in joining a working group as an active, participating group member for a specific state please complete the short application below.

By completing an application to be an active working group member, you are making a commitment to help advance the goals of the state working group and the PJP. In general, the efforts of these state working groups include, but are not limited to: developing comprehensive law, policy, and social reform principles; developing statewide law modernization strategies, engaging in community education work, building a broad-based coalition of stakeholders interested in ending HIV criminalization; helping with and providing feedback on draft legislation.

In all cases, the PJP and other advocates will help you understand and support what you need to complete associated tasks. It must be remembered, however, that advocates must be “committed” to the work of ending HIV criminalization in order for group efforts to be successful. Such commitment begins with and is maintained by your participation in regular monthly calls and your engagement in the subsequent work-related tasks that follow.

Note that fields marked with an * are required.

Organization, school, or other affiliation (if applicable).
For example, are you a Georgia resident wishing to join the Georgia working group or do you reside outside the state of Georgia but your advocacy work includes the state of Georgia? If you wish, you can include a brief explanation when describing your interest in joining the group.
