Regional Chapters

leaders_groupTraining and supporting women living with HIV to be leaders, and to mobilize advocates in their own areas of the U.S., are essential aspects of PWN-USA’s vision and mission.

Regional chapters are groups of women living with HIV organizing at the local or state level to further the mission and advocacy agenda of PWN-USA. Regional chapters are supported by PWN-USA staff and leadership via technical assistance, trainings, tools and resources. There is a process to formally affiliate as a PWN-USA Regional Chapter.

To learn more about the process of forming a regional chapter of PWN-USA, contact Waheedah Shabazz-El, PWN-USA’s Regional Organizing Coordinator, at waheedah.work@gmail.com.

One thought on “Regional Chapters

  1. PWN-USA has a clear mission to prepare and and involve all WLWHIV at the level of policy and decision-making to ensure programs & policies fit the realities of our lives.
    These regional chapters are incubating and cultivating the next tier of leaders to be a part of the solution in addressing the AIDS epidemic. We can’t end the AIDS without addressing the treatment, care and prevention needs of women and girls.
    I encourage each of us to use this place
    not only for gathering information but for sharing ourselves with each other. Holding one another up and having each others back.
