SisterLove’s Bridge Leadership Program (BLP) recruits, educates and trains women throughout metropolitan Atlanta to be advocates for HIV issues. They train women living with HIV in key areas, such as living with HIV, dealing with stigma, disclosure, relationships, accessing treatment, health literacy, communication, and care.
SisterLove show’s its commitment to advocacy and education by investing in the leadership of HIV-positive women throughout the South, by keeping current with the policy issues that most affect the population they serve, and by disseminating information to their constituents to actively engage them in the movement to eradicate HIV and AIDS.
SisterLove created “Everyone Has a Story,” a mini-documentary and educational HIV treatment and care resource/workshop. The documentary features interviews with women living with HIV who speak about the challenges of HIV and how they overcome them in their daily lives.
SisterLove believes in changing the face of the HIV pandemic through the education and mentoring of women living with HIV to become leaders and spokeswomen in their communities.
