NBLCA’S “Breaking The Stigma” Comes to Syracuse. Will You Join Us 7/19?

The Syracuse affiliate of the National Black Leadership Commission on AIDS, Inc(NBLCA) invites you, your friends, family, and loved ones to join us on Tuesday, July 19, 2016, 5 pm- 8pm, as interactive participants in the Syracuse premiere event in our “Breaking The Stigma” campaign.

Held at South Side Innovation Center, 2610 S. Salina St. Syracuse 13205, this free social event, which is open to all, will allow participants to share their studies through video testimonies, photos and a collaborative art project in a fun atmosphere that includes food, refreshments and music. On-site HIV/Hepatitis C testing will be provided and giveaways will include HIV prevention kits.

You see, we’ve learned that stigma – whether it relates to race, sexual orientation, gender identity or HIV status – can hinder the fight against HIV/AIDS by preventing people from coming forward to be tested, using prevention tools or getting treatment and staying in care. Through “Breaking The Stigma,” community members have been able to share their stories about the ways they have overcome stigma and thrived. Won’t you join us to fight the effects of stigma in Syracuse?

To learn more, see previous video testimonials such as Jace’s Story, or Escott’s Story; and read about NBLCA’s spring launch event in Harlem.

All photo and video participants will be asked to:

1) Wear RED attire

2) Sign a consent form (additional guardian consent required for all youth participants under the age of 18).

To RSVP, please e-mail Denise Welch at dwelch@nblca.org.
