May 25, 2017 – Race, Class, Health & Privilege: Women of PWN Dismantling Racism Webinar #3

What is the impact of racial bias in health care for people of color, particularly for Black women living with HIV? How does mass incarceration fuel and feed disparities in health outcomes and affect families and communities? In this third webinar in the anti-racism curriculum developed by Women of PWN Dismantling Racism, an affinity group of white women living with HIV committed to addressing racism in ourselves and our communities, we will explore the different ways in which racism impacts health–and how we can fight for change.

Presenters:
Manige Blackburn-Giles, health care provider
Dalia Rubiano Yedidia, Forward Together
Kari Hartel, PWN-USA Colorado Co-Chair
Kathleen Griffith, PWN-USA Board Member

May 22, 2017 – Avoiding Work Fatigue and Burnout Through Sustainability and Self-Care

“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” ― Audre Lorde

The places we live, learn, work and play have tremendous impact on our health outcomes as Black women living with HIV. We need to be at forefront of racial justice for Black women, but finding a healthy balance of self-care and activism can be tricky. The Black Women Living with HIV affinity group formed at the 2016 Speak Up Summit is proud to present its first webinar, open to all women living with HIV, with presenters Penny DeNoble and Teresa Sullivan, who will help you understand stress, trauma and how you can improve your advocacy through self-care practices.

May 17, 2017 – Choosing Frames, Changing the Narrative: Values-Based Messaging 2.0

In the era of Trump, it’s more critical than ever that we advocate as effectively as possible and build as broad a base as possible to fight with us on our issues. We were incredibly fortunate to have special guest presenters Anat Shenker-Osorio, an acclaimed communications consultant and messaging expert; Charles Stephens, founder and director of the Counter Narrative Project and an accomplished writer; and Dr. Andrew Spieldenner, professor in Communication Studies and chair of the US People Living with HIV Caucus, teach us what they’ve learned in their work about how we can choose frames and change the narrative about the issues we are passionate about to translate into real policy wins.

March 9, 2017 – Bodily Autonomy: A Framework to Guide Our Future

Bodily autonomy is the simple but radical notion that individuals have a right to control what does and doesn’t happen to their bodies. This is central to PWN-USA’s vision of a world where all women and girls living with HIV can lead long, healthy, dignified lives, free from stigma, discrimination, and violence in all forms.

This important webinar in honor of National Women & Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NWGHAAD) explains bodily autonomy as a crucial framework for understanding and fighting the intensifying, oppressive attacks on women, people of color, immigrants, Muslims, LGBQ and trans folks, and people living with HIV and other chronic health conditions.

Presenters:
Micky Bradford, Southern Regional Organizer, Transgender Law Center & Southerners on New Ground
Bré Campbell, Co-Founder & Executive Director, Trans Sistas of Color Project Detroit; Board Member, PWN-USA

criminalizationas-violence-against-women-living-with-hivNovember 29, 2016 – Criminalization As Violence Against People Living with HIV

This webinar was a discussion of criminalization as a perilous form of violence against people living with HIV (PLHIV). As we carry forward the work of National Day of Action to End Violence Against Women Living with HIV (WHLIV), we are reminded that interpersonal violence doesn’t happen in a vacuum – rather, institutions and systems create the conditions for violence against PLHIV to occur. At the same time, the forces of policing, incarceration, and criminalization inflict violence and trauma on communities that are disproportionately impacted by HIV, including communities of color, transgender and gender non-conforming people, people who use drugs, and sex workers.

The webinar also reviewed PWN-USA’s new factsheet examining Criminalization as Violence Against Women Living with HIV, and specifically discussed the disproportionate policing of communities impacted by HIV, police violence and brutality, the challenges of incarceration and reentry, and HIV criminalization as a specific form of structural violence against PLHIV. We also discussed policy recommendations and actions you can take to challenge these forms of violence against PLHIV.

September 13, 2016 – #PWNVotes: Winning on #HIV in #Election2016

#Election2016As we approach a historic election cycle this fall, we encourage PWN-USA members and allies to remember what’s at stake for people living with HIV and communities most impacted by the epidemic. It’s critical that we vote and ensure our folks are well-informed about their voting rights as well as what will be on the ballot – all the way down to state and local races. Although news about the two major party presidential candidates continues to dominate the media, important issues including interpretation and enforcement of HIV criminalization laws, Medicaid expansion,  minimum wage increases, reproductive rights and women’s health and anti-LGBTQ legislation are at stake on ballots across the nation.

Join us for a conversation about how to effectively leverage your vote and get your community involved this election cycle!

We’ll be discussing tactics and tools to elevate issues for candidates, including bird-dogging and candidate questionnaires, the importance of down-ballot races, get out the vote (GOTV) and working at the polls.

Presenters:
Kalpana Krishnamurthy – Forward Together
Tami HaughtSERO Project, Iowa resident, and intractable bird-dogger
Patrica Clark – PWN-USA Michigan member and candidate for Kalamazoo County Commissioner
Loren Jones— PWN-USA Board Member, PWN Bay Area member and election poll-worker

July 12, 2016 – Social Media for Advocacy

social media webinar graphic 2#3 in a 4-part Communications Training Series. What is social media? What are the different networks good for?

We will explore these questions and more with folks who do it really well–and get real results.

May 25, 2016 – Using Values-Based Messaging to Move Your Campaign

core values2#2 in a 4-part Communications Training Series, #3 in a 3-part Policy Training Series, and #5 in a 5-part Regional Organizing and Leadership Development Training Series . Have you ever wondered why so many people seem so willing to believe things politicians or other public figures say that simply aren’t true, or why it’s so hard to win a debate with certain folks, even when all the facts are on your side? People believe in or discard messages based on what appeals to their core values. When you know how to identify those core values and appeal to as many of them as possible in your message, your audience is much more likely to hear and consider your message. In this interactive training, we will learn just how to do that, as well as how to make that message the public platform of your campaign.
