African Americans continue to be disproportionately impacted by HIV, accounting for 44% of all people living with HIV in the U.S. The urgency to respond is greater than ever and to fight this social injustice, the NAACP is calling on Black Churches to take action through The Black Church & HIV: The Social Justice Imperative. Through this initiative, the NAACP is equipping faith leaders with new ways to engage their congregants in conversations about HIV/AIDS. The initiative is aspiring to enlist faith leaders as agents of change, to create a movement that encourages communities to take action to stop the social injustices that have led to the unequal impact HIV is having in the Black community.
The Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) convenes leaders to turn ideas into action. CGI Commitments to Action represent bold new ways that CGI members address global challenges—implemented through new methods of partnership and designed to maximize impact. Commitments can be small or large, global or local. No matter the size or scope, commitments help CGI members translate practical goals into meaningful and measurable results.
