SAC and SASI at the U.S. Conference on AIDS

The U.S. Conference on AIDS (USCA) is just around the corner, and more than 3,000 delegates are preparing to descend upon our nation’s capital. USCA is an annual opportunity for us to come together and learn from one another, but it is also an opportunity for us to bring attention to our epidemic in the South.

This year, we’re giving you three ways to connect with us. First, SAC and SASI (and AIDS Alabama) organized the official “Southern Pathway,” including four workshops on topics of critical value to our movement. Beyond the pathway, our staff members are actively participating in at least five other sessions. Lastly, we have a booth in the exhibition hall. As you take a break from the conference to enjoy some dessert, stop by and get to know us a little better.
