A prospective look at the coming year and Occupy Together, AIDS 2012,
the Presidential Elections, the future of funding and the fate of HIV Prevention Justice

Panelists include:

  • Jennifer Flynn, Health GAP
  • Terrence Moore, National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors (NASTAD)
  • Sherry Prowda, Herndon Alliance

Background:
2011 was a tumultuous year (and it’s not over yet).  The world is still mired in the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression with no clear end in sight.  Here in the U.S., it seems like Congress just can’t get anything done and an increasingly restless public has taken to the streets in the growing Occupy Together movement.  With the deficit reduction super-committee poised to make the biggest changes to the federal landscape in a generation, the future of health care reform and HIV/AIDS funding hang in the balance.

2012 is shaping up to be an interesting year…

  • What are the key Federal HIV/AIDS policies that will be in play in 2012?
  • How can the HIV Prevention Justice movement support the growing Occupy Together demonstrations in its calls for economic justice?
  • How will the first International AIDS Conference on U.S. soil in 20 years move the HIV Prevention Justice agenda forward?
  • How will rhetoric and realities of health care access and reform play out in the election year, and how will it affect HIV/AIDS?

We’ll address these questions and more!

Please consider that the HIV PJA has three working groups that will be working on our campaigns and in coalition with other groups. They are:

Here are some of the issues we’ll be discussing in Chicago:

  • Key opportunities and challenges in the next year and a half of the HIV prevention justice  movement in the United States, including changes in HIV/AIDS funding, the growing Occupy Together  movement, health care reform, AIDS 2012 and the presidential election
  • Building and linking campaigns on key drivers of HIV in the United States (including mass imprisonment and criminalization, LGBTQ rights and liberation, and economic justice)
  • Clear and realistic communication strategies about human rights, economic justice and HIV prevention justice
  • Creating  powerful, inspiring messages to bring HIV prevention justice to our individual interactions and organizational efforts, all the way to mass media coverage and negotiations with political targets
  • Using meetings and mobilizations (at all stages from planning to action to follow up) to amplify more voices, build new leadership and win concrete victories for HIV prevention justice
