We would like to express our sincerest appreciation to our sponsors Gilead Sciences and the MAC A.I.D.S Fund.

BEYOND THESE WALLS

Join SisterLove this month as we kick off the BEYOND THESE WALLS Campaign!

With funding from the EMPOWERED Community Grants Program, SisterLove, Inc. will expand the efforts and reach of the “Everyone Has a Story” program, which is a video-based behavioral intervention that aims to provide women living with HIV the knowledge and skills they need to face issues in their daily life. The video series and intervention focuses on five key components for women living with HIV/AIDS: treatment options; provider communication and cultural competency; HIV stigma, discrimination, and disclosure; medical adherence; and support networks. Beyond These Walls will utilize live video streaming, live Twitter chats and strategic social media messaging to expand the messages of the EHAS program and encourage more HIV+ women to become and remain involved in the movement to eradicate HIV/AIDS.

The program kicks off this week with a series of social media updates that will be focused on facts about HIV and women. Like us on Facebook  and follow us on Twitter  in order to become EMPOWERED with accurate information about protecting yourself and getting in treatment, if needed. Other topics will follow including releasing shame and discrimination, social responsibility, HIV treatment and Biomedical Interventions, and HIV Testing and Counseling. 

SisterLove will also host five trainings sessions on the video series Everyone Has a Story beginning on December 5th. Attend in person or watch and participate LIVE on the web. For more information please contact Stephanie Laster at (404) 254-4734 or at slaster@sisterlove.org.

2020 LEADER OF THE MONTH
REV. ANDRENA INGRAM

Reverend Andrena Ingram is a strong advocate for those living in the margins, as she once was. She is a survivor of domestic abuse, sexual molestation, substance abuse, and homelessness. Raised in South Jamaica, New York, Reverend Ingram served seven years of active duty in the U.S. Army. She is an activist in the HIV/AIDS arena, herself living openly and unabashedly with the HIV virus for over 25 years.

She is a former member of The Ryan White Planning Council in Philadelphia, and has also had a place at the table on the Directors Board of Philadelphia Fight: an AIDS service organization providing primary care, consumer education, advocacy and research on potential treatments and vaccines.

Reverend Ingram is outspoken against stigma of any kind in the HIV field. She makes herself available for people who are living in silence and shame with HIV; and moreover, is specifically concerned and vocal about the church’s ongoing response or lack of response in relation to HIV issues in their communities, as well as, throughout the world.

Reverend Ingram does not use her status as a religious leader to condemn anyone, but rather uses her status as a religious leader living “positively” with HIV to share her life as one who lives by faith, through grace, with God’s everlasting love, forgiveness, and mercy.
