On February 23, 2016, Advocates of all ages for HIV/AIDS awareness in Tennessee gathered to visit our elected officials. Through resources provided by The Elton John AIDS Foundation, Youth and young adults of the Greater Memphis community were able to attend the event to speak on the issues impacting their community. They had the rare opportunity to share their stories, educate state representatives and senators on HIV 101, and effect real change for the betterment of those living with HIV/AIDS through policy. Our future leaders spoke also raised awareness to the need of Insure Tennessee, the amendment of the aggravated prostitution law, and the continued funding of the AIDS Drug Assistance Program/ Ryan White funding for those living in Shelby County. They were seen by your government, heard by your government, and served you well!
YLI-Memphis is beginning 2016 with comprehensive education and access presentations in the Memphis area! We plan to target the high risk demographics in the greater Memphis area with HIV infections and interested parties in the new intervention drug. If you’re interested in having YLI-Memphis facilitate PrEP education and access classes. Please inquire in the contact us tab on the YLImemphis.org web page.
YLI-Memphis is glad to support the Memphis Peace and Justice Center in collaboration with other community organizations with finally getting the Civilian Law Enforcement Review Board (CLERB) passed by the Memphis City Council on November 3, 2015. Memphis has asked, and Memphis has received.
Congratulations to James Allen, Jeremy Douglas, and Advocacy Specialist Dewayne Murrell of the Youth Leadership Initiative-Memphis on completing their commitment with the Shelby County Citizens’ University!
