HIV thrives in conditions of structural inequity where the workings of poverty, patriarchy, and other overlapping systems of injustice render community members vulnerable to acquiring HIV. Who is “most vulnerable” and who “falls through the cracks” is not static. We do not all experience these vulnerabilities in exactly the same way. However, the differences in our experiences the learning edges of power and oppression,privilege and vulnerability can, for our extraordinarily diverse HIV community, be sources of strength themselves.
Today on World AIDS Day – the Counter Narrative Project, Positive Women’s Network – USA, Transgender Law Center, Women with a Vision and the HIV Prevention Justice Alliance have come together in a statement on Intersectionality, HIV Justice and the Future of Our Movement.
