Registration is now open for the Breaking Barriers AIDS Conference: Tackling Stigma. The daylong conference will be held May 4, 2020, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Breaking Barriers is a daylong event for those concerned about the issues of HIV and AIDS and for who hope for an AIDS-free world.
Since the beginning of the HIV & AIDS crisis, stigma has kept people from being tested or acknowledging their status if they were infected. This reality has fueled the epidemic resulting in alarming numbers of infections.
The conference will be a forum for story-telling and healing through listening and action, with a special emphasis on stigma eradication.
Please join us. The event is open to all people.
