Our Advocacy

We focus on policies and funding for HIV prevention and care, sexually-transmitted infection and hepatitis C prevention and treatment, PrEP, harm reduction initiatives including supervised consumption sites, access to healthcare and healthcare affordability, housing and homelessness prevention, and more.

Our policy and advocacy team champions evidence-based policies at the local, state and federal levels, fighting every day to protect the health justice of people in our community. Together with partner organizations and community members, we shape legislation and funding for programs and policies that affect us all.
