Florida has a horrible record on fighting HIV. From refusing to invest in prevention efforts, to biased sexual health education in our schools, to anemic public education and intervention strategies that would help reduce the rate of HIV transmissions, Florida is failing. However, there is reason for hope! With YOUR support, we're taking on the challenge of ending this epidemic once and for all by:
Working with our coalition partners and lawmakers in Tallahassee to modernize Florida's HIV-specific laws;
Demanding effective and honest public education strategies; and
Working with school districts to create safe and welcoming schools for LGBTQ students. We know when LGBTQ youth feel supported, they're less likely to contract HIV.
Will you help us combat HIV in Florida by supporting our work to end HIV-related stigma, misinformation, and HIV transmissions?
