This policy brief is an acknowledgment of the courageous efforts of a group of men living with AIDS who created The Denver Principles and gave voice to people with AIDS in the early days of the AIDS epidemic, when they were routinely ostracized, feared, and reviled, subject to rejection by their families and friends, loss of employment and housing, and faced tremendous difficulties accessing healthcare for a mysterious illness that was believed to be 100% fatal. This Brief also honors the history and future of people over 50 aging with HIV. It acknowledges intersections of race, gender, geography, and class as they impact access and outcomes for people living with HIV.
ARISE! LET OUR VOICES BE HEARD.
The EPIC Movement is an advocacy movement for and by Black cisgender women lving with HIV in the United States.
It is time for Black cisgender women living with HIV to have their voices heard. We created the EPIC Movement make a differenc, because we can no longer afford to remain faceless and silent in the wake of the continued devastation caused by of ongoing epidemic, HIV disease.
The purpose of this listening session is to collect information about the experiences of Black cisgender women living with HIV, and to discuss how we can sustain our lives and well-being under the End the HIV Epidemic (EHE) and the National HIV AIDS Strategy (NHAS). We are also here to ensure that Black cisgender women are thriving in all aspects of their lives and that any plan or strategy to end the HIV epidemic in this country takes what we think matters into accounts.
