“If not me, then who? I firmly believe that change can start with us, but we have to be willing to do it and not keep expecting others to do the work—our work. ”

—CB Mason-Snowden,
Southern AIDS Coalition Executive Assistant

CB Mason-Snowden

Executive Assistant

Growing up in the South, CB has seen firsthand what the lack of resources, stigma, systemic racism, willful ignorance, and complicit behavior have done to establish and uphold the deep inequities Black people are forced to navigate daily in all areas of their lives including health. They’ve always been passionate about educating themselves and those around them on sex and sexual health, and in 2012, found their path with HIV. Knowing how disproportionately Black people are affected by various illnesses, including HIV, made CB want to do something about it. CB says, “How can I expect things to change if they’re doing nothing to aid it? How can I ask of others when I myself am not willing to give or extend or stretch and grow? If not me, then who? I firmly believe that change can start with us, but we have to be willing to do it and not keep expecting others to do the work—our work.”

CB’s hope is to provide support to those on the ground creating the change we need while being able to still join them in their efforts. They believe that handling administrative work allows those on the front end more freedom to reach more people. CB also says, “What I loved about SAC was that I felt that people were genuinely doing the work not just telling people what should be done. I want to be a part of that. I want to do the work. I want to educate. I want to serve. I want to do my part to make the changes we all want to see. I want to make a difference because people deserve better.”

This is Not a JOB, This is My Calling
