Positive Organizing Project Trains a New Generation of HIV Advocates

More than 30 years after Legacy mobilized resources to battle the AIDS epidemic of the 80s, we're training a new generation of leaders to advocate for accessible health care and medications, and end to stigma, and the decriminalization of HIV.

Positive Organizing Project, or POP+, began three years ago to empower people living with HIV (PLHIV) to change the lives of others. "We wanted to share what we wished we knew when we were first diagnosed," says POP+ coordinator Venita Ray. "This training was developed by PLHIV who know first-hand the challenges of a positive diagnosis."
