HIV-positive folks who are involved in HIV networks find support, purpose, strength to combat stigma, and a better quality of life.
The Sero Project, a network of people with HIV and allies fighting for freedom from stigma and injustice, is particularly focused on ending inappropriate criminal prosecutions of people with HIV, including for non-disclosure of their HIV status, potential or perceived HIV exposure or HIV transmission.
The organization's criminalization work includes raising public awareness through community education efforts and outreach to mobilize and advocate for reform. By engaging and empowering those most directly affected to advocate on their own behalf and share their compelling personal stories, Sero helps build a growing grassroots movement to mobilize the advocacy necessary to end HIV criminalization and promote a human rights-based approach to end the HIV epidemic.
