We are a movement – a truly diverse community working across political, religious, and geographic lines to end the HIV epidemic in the South. We are young and old. We are mothers and doctors and writers and CEOs. We are bus drivers and activists and sex workers and small business owners. We are many things all at once, and together, we are the Southern AIDS Coalition.
We are also a bridge – connecting each other to the information, resources, and support needed to prevent new transmissions and build a better South for people living with HIV.
Be You. Be Bold. Be Brave. Be SAC.
