Get LáDeia to SPEAK UP Summit 2018

Far too often, women living with HIV are talked about, instead of talked to, at the tables where decisions are made about our lives.

As a member of Positive Women’s Network-USA (PWN-USA), our mission is to shift that balance: to prepare and involve women living with HIV, in all our diversity, including gender identity and sexual expression, to be at those decision-making tables.

In 2018, PWN-USA is building on previous success with its third national summit: SPEAK UP!
A National Summit for Women Living with HIV, to take place April 12-15 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. During the Summit, women living with HIV will build leadership skills, discuss timely policy, legal and research trends relevant to women’s lives, and strategize to support organizing and advocacy at a federal and state level. This Summit, led by and for women living with HIV, is designed to give us the skills, tools and connections we need to be effective advocates for the issues that directly impact us and our communities.

As an advocate and a member of PWN-USA, attending this Summit is crucially important to me—but I may not be able to attend without your financial support. While PWN-USA is committed to keeping the cost to attendees low to ensure maximum participation from the most impacted communities, this small nonprofit organization is not able to pay for our travel to and from Fort Walton Beach. There is also a $250 registration fee.

I hope I can count on your support to get me to the Summit! If you have further questions, feel free to contact me via the messaging option on GoFundMe

As alway, I thank you for your moral and financial support.

In Sisterhood and Solidarity,
