About the series:

HIV and Faith in Resilience and Renewal,
Conversations on the Legacy and Future of the U.S. Faith Response to HIV & AIDS
This series, developed by the US HIV and AIDS Faith Coalition (USHAFC), will explore the 40 year legacy of U.S. faith communities toward ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic. It will feature conversations with a variety of leaders from faith-based organizations, houses of worship, community organizations, and government agencies who will address the intersections of race, class, gender, sex, sexuality, and religion in the history of the HIV response in the U.S., and identify lessons learned, offer insights, and share their vision for what will be needed to end the epidemic. The event will center the commentary of faith actors from multiple faith traditions and practices, people living with HIV, and HIV practitioners who have been involved in HIV/AIDS advocacy since the beginning of the epidemic.
The format will include a conversation, guest responders to the conversation, and discussion/Q&A with the webinar audience. The series is currently scheduled to run from July 29 until World AIDS Day, December 2020.
