Tune in each Thursday on Zoom or Facebook Live through February 18th for conversations exploring race, caste systems, and the repercussions of a society organized by artificial distinctions of what makes someone 'less than.’

We’ll be joined by some incredible guests, including Tracy Baim, Zakiya Johnson Lord, Imani Rupert-Gordon, Illinois Comptroller Susana Mendoza, and more to be announced. This discussion series is part of the City of Chicago’s #TogetherWeHeal initiative.

Personal protective equipment is especially important for individuals living with HIV--even more so for those living in shared or semi-shared housing. We’ve provided our nearly 400 residents with multiple sets of PPE throughout the pandemic and our resilient staff work each day to keep our residents safe. Can you commit to a monthly gift of $19.85 (that’s just $0.65/day) to ensure that our clients have the resources they need to stay safe?

Today, we remember the transgender and gender nonconforming individuals taken from us too soon.

Transgender individuals of color are disproportionately impacted by hate, violence, racism, and transphobia. The overwhelming majority of the transgender or gender nonconforming individuals who lost their lives to violence this year were Black or Latinx women.

Transgender individuals often face one final violence after being murdered by being misgendered, or not having their death reported or properly investigated.

We see you. We remember you. We honor you.
