There are currently 1.1 million people in the United States living with HIV/AIDS. 1 in 4 of those living with HIV/AIDS are women. Women of color are at even greater risk, accounting for the majority of new infections among women. Here is another startling fact, 1 in 5 American with HIV do not know that they are positive.
Walgreens has teamed up with Greater Than AIDS for a national watch party on, Sunday January 19, 2014, during which the documentary We Are Empowered will be watched and discussed. Join us Wednesday, January 15, 2014 for the #WeAreEmpowered Twitter Party. We will discuss the upcoming documentary being aired on VH1, and ways that you can stay safe and empower yourself.
While in college in the 90s, I was a part of Binghamton University’s SafeHighs. We were a group of students who would meet in dorms and small gatherings to talk and discuss ways to stay safe and HIV/AIDS awareness. So many were unaware of how to protect themselves and I was happy to be a part of a group who helped to empower others.
