Sacred Conversation: Women and HIV
January 28 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Women living with HIV face different challenges and stigma than other people living with HIV. Join us for the Sacred Conversations: Women in HIV to talk about an intersectional approach for women living with HIV and ways faith communities can get involved in HIV work.
Join us on Jan. 28th for the next in our series of Sacred Conversations: Women and HIV. According to the Office of Women’s Health “One in four people living with HIV in the United States is a woman.” Learn what living with HIV looks like for women and how faith communities can get involved.
