August 2020: HIV Is a Social and Racial Justice Issue

Presented by Ian Haddock

This webinar considered the implications of reducing HIV to a health disparity and public health issue through the lens of a grassroots activist. In this webinar, we discussed projects and programs of The Normal Anomaly Initiative to tell the story of those at the margins, particularly Black queer men and transwomen. Through this webinar, we hoped to create synergy to move all involved in ending the HIV epidemic to see its intersection in the national racial justice movement and international social justice movement.
