Webinar: Women of PWN-USA Dismantling Racism - Introduction - January 17, 2017

January 17, 2017
5:30 - 7:00 PM EST | 2:30 - 4:00 PM PST
via PWN-USA

At the 2016 PWN Speak Up Summit in Ft. Walton Beach, white women living with HIV committed to study and challenge racism, within ourselves and in our communities. We promised to do this work even when it makes us uncomfortable. We want and need to stand with our Black and brown sisters living with HIV in the struggle for dignity, justice, and rights for us all.   

The election of Donald Trump and Mike Pence has shaken this country to its core. As women living with HIV, we are gravely concerned about our ability to maintain our health care, housing, childcare, wages, and support services. As white women living with HIV, we are also frightened for the safety of our Black and brown sisters, cisgender and transgender, for our own Black and brown children, and for all members of non-white and non-Christian, non-heterosexual communities. As this wave of white supremacy crashes over our country, we commit to stand together and to fight alongside our Black and brown sisters and communities.  

Starting in January 2017, our newly formed group, Women of PWN Dismantling Racism, will initiate an antiracism curriculum by and for white women living with HIV. We will host webinars for all women living with HIV where we can meet, hear, learn, and support each other. As we do this, we will continue, on our own and through PWN, to monitor events in Washington, hold all our elected officials accountable and take action to fight anything that negatively affects marginalized communities or our Black or brown sisters in any way. We will continue fighting for justice for women living with HIV, our families and our communities. 

We invite you all to be part of our kickoff webinar January 17, 2017, 5:30 - 7 PM EST (2:30 - 4 PM PST) as we provide an overview of the curriculum goals and welcome those who want to participate in and support this work.
